The Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce’s Women in Business Committee will host a virtual program at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 5, highlighting solutions and resources for job searching and career development in the current climate.
The program will be led by Janeth Castrejon, communications manager for CareerSource Southwest Florida, and Nadine Kramarz, reference librarian for the Lee County Library System. Castrejon and Kramarz will cover topics including how to evolve to the new norm of online interviews and meetings as well as the free and varied resources that both organizations provide for individuals and small businesses.
Castrejon supports CareerSource Southwest Florida in its efforts to align employers with job seekers across Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties. Prior to CareerSource, she served in the U.S. Army and worked for various companies within the financial industry. She earned a bachelor’s degree in communication with a concentration in public relations from Florida Gulf Coast University.
As a reference librarian, Kramarz works to pair people with information. The public library has several resources to help individuals and small businesses succeed, and Kramarz has held in-person database demonstrations, offered increased STEM programming for adults and written articles that discuss information literacy at the public library. Kramarz holds a master’s degree in information science from Drexel University.
Each month, Women in Business features a nonprofit spotlight and in August, The School District of Lee County will be highlighted. The School District is the ninth-largest district in Florida and the 32nd-largest district in the United States, providing education to over 94,000 students in grades K-12.
