Lucy Wellmaker gave advice for women searching for new jobs on WFMY News 2. She said the one thing women can do that can cost them a job is not recognizing their worth.
"We have so many skills and talents that come naturally to us that we don't see as valued," said Wellmaker.
She said some sought-after skills are organization and mult-tasking. Wellmaker said women need to have the confidence men do when interviewing for a job.
"A lot of men get jobs over women simply because they sell themselves better."
Wellmaker said be prepared before you seek out a new career path.
