The Women's Career Success Conference

New Mexico's economic growth depends on the success of women.

On Thursday, November 14, I'm hosting the Women's Career Success Conference with the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce to help women in New Mexico improve their job skills and enhance their careers.

The conference will bring together area employers, nonprofit organizations and federal agency officials to offer personalized skill-building opportunities for women to strengthen their competitiveness in the workforce.

The event is free, but space is limited, so I encourage you to register at or by calling my Albuquerque office at (505) 346-6791.

If you are a woman looking to start your own business, needing help improving your résumé, or simply considering a career change, I invite you to join my office for this exciting conference.

Highlights of the Women's Career Success Conference include:

- breakout sessions with HR professionals who can offer resume and cover letter writing tips
- interviewing tips, mock interview practice, and dressing for success
- a computer skill session, including online job search tips and help navigating
- resources on what it takes to start a successful small business - from creating a business plan and securing business loans, to utilizing a community commercial kitchen to start a food production business
