HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Women are still under represented in the workplace and earn less than men on the dollar according to the American Association of University Women Honolulu spokeswoman. To give women an advantage, the local chapter will hold a free seminar to teach interview and negotiation skills for their first job. 

Smart Start is sponsored by AAUW Honolulu  and will be held on the UH Manoa campus at the Queen Lili‘uokalani Center for Student Services Room 212. It's open to female UH college students. It will be on March 31, from 1 pm to 3:30 pm. To attend, contact the Manoa Career Center, 956-7007 or careers@hawaii.edu. Participants should be able to attend the whole event.
