Dear W.O.M.E.N.,

Many of you know well how much we need to reinvent ourselves professionally when moving to Iceland. Since our last recruitment workshop was very well attended, we at W.O.M.E.N. feel that we need to address more employment issues.

A professional career coach is offering us a collaboration for a 2 hours workshop in a small group (in English). There will be a set of questions to identify your value, skillsets, etc, and the goal would be to identify what position & industry in Iceland would be the most suitable to you, and leave the workshop with an action plan.

Contact Marion at marion@womeniniceland.is if you are interested, and let her know quickly when would be the best (now in June/summer, or in the fall/September)! The workshop would be for members only (4.500 isk/year), but membership would give you access to other members only events.

Below, see our post about our last recruitment workshop, and other news about Kvennaborðið!

Have a nice week-end!

The way to approach job search can …

Kvennaborðið - Leiðsögn á einfaldri íslensku í Sjóminjasafninu!
Kvennaborðið var svo gaman í Sjóminjasafninu! Leiðsögukona okkar, Hlín, var svo æðileg og við vorum öll sammála: við skildum meira en venjulega! Eftir leiðsögn hennar sögðum við skoðun okkar og spjöllum saman um íslensku á einföldu máli í safninu. Takk fyrir boðið Hlín og Borgarsögusafn Reykjavíkur! Við sjáumst í Aðalstræti 10 þann 29. júní: https://womeniniceland.is/events/kvennabordid-leidsogn-a-einfaldri-islensku-landnamssyningin-adalstraeti/

Kvennaborðið - Sumarklúbbur!

Það var ótrulega gaman að hittast í sólinni í Borgarbókasafn Grófinni! This was so fun to meet in the sun at the City Library Grófin! Við ræddum um íslensku, íslenskukennslu og hvað vantar okkur til að bæta íslenskuna okkar. We discussed Icelandic, Icelandic teaching and what we need to improve our Icelandic. Flestir okkur tölum ekki íslensku heima eða í …
