Irvine non-profit Working Wardrobes has begun offering digital webinars to adapt to the coronavirus’ impact on its operations.
The organization said its Rebuilding Careers series consists of video workshops offering viewers advice on job searches, resumes, networking and other career development subjects.
The free series takes place every Tuesday and Thursday and requires pre-registration through the Working Wardobes site.
