UF Students in Free Enterprise is hosting a Women’s Career Expo today from 9 a.m. to noon at the Center for Innovation and Economic Development at Santa Fe College.

The event consists of a panel discussion, resume and interviewing workshops and a career fair for women looking to re-enter the work force after a prolonged absence.

Laura Bosco, one of the coordinators of the event, said she wanted to plan the event after her mom went through the process of finding a job.

“That was something that I helped her with and saw some of the problems she went through,” she said.

The expo is hosting organizations that will give attendees advice from dressing for success to making transitions from one job to another.

The participating organizations include FloridaWorks, O2B Kids!, the Gainesville Area Women’s Network, TempForce of Gainesville and the Center for Business and Entrepreneur Incubator.

Each organization will have a booth where participants can stop by and get information on things such as child care options, networking, and women’s health and confidence.

Jenny Seltzer, another coordinator for the event, said the expo’s purpose is to make these organizations more accessible to local women.

“It’s just kind of bringing the local community resources together with the women who need their services,” Seltzer said.
