Bay Path Hosts Workshop to Help Women Re-Enter the Workforce

Looking to return to work after an extended absence? You need to understand your professional story – and how to tell it. On May 6, Bay Path University will host The Next Chapter: Transitioning Back to Work After an Extended Absence.  This session, presented by Strategic Alliances at Bay Path University and Johnson & Hill Staffing, and in partnership with the Bay Path University Advisory Council is designed for women in all industries and at all levels of their career looking to make a return to the workforce.

This three-hour interactive session, run by Gretchen Heaton, Director of Career Development at Bay Path’s The American Women’s College, will focus on how to effectively translate experiences and accomplishments into a compelling narrative that makes sense to future employees. Critical job search resources, such as returnships, mentoring, informational interviews, and volunteer opportunities will also be discussed.

This session, a part of the Why Not Me Career Transitions Series, begins at 6:00 p.m. and is being held at Bay Path University’s Philip H. Ryan Health Science Center, 1 Denslow Road, East Longmeadow, MA.  Tickets to this session include dinner and are available now. To sign up for this session or to learn more, please visit
