Bay Path, Johnson & Hill Staffing Team Up to Help Women Navigate Their Career Path
EAST LONGMEADOW — Lifelong learning is an important concept to Bay Path University, and its Strategic Alliances division is moving that undertaking from the classroom to the boardroom with its upcoming Career Transition series. This series, designed for women entering the workforce or planning a career transition, contains five independent sessions that speak to various stages of career growth and development.
Presented in partnership with Johnson & Hill Staffing and the Bay Path University Advisory Council, each session of this five-part series will cover a different stage of career transition, from landing one’s first professional job to preparing for a promotion, to rebooting one’s career. Each session will be hosted by a Bay Path staff member or a Johnson & Hill staffing specialist.
The decision to partner with Bay Path for this initiative was easy for Johnson & Hill Staffing President Andrea Hill-Cataldo. A long time Bay Path supporter and a current member of its board of trustees, Hill-Cataldo has a long history of being invested in the work of furthering women’s education. Her mother was a member of the Bay Path class of 1957, and in 2000 she established the Barbara Brodeur Hill ’57 Endowed Scholarship in her memory.
“At Johnson & Hill, we are proud to partner with Bay Path University on this important series of career-transition events,” said Hill-Cataldo. “As a woman-owned business, Johnson & Hill values the opportunity to serve as a strategic career resource to the women in our community. Bay Path University has long been a leader in the field of higher education, and in educating women. It’s exciting for us to partner with them on a series that will provide concrete next steps for women who are all in different stages of their career.”
Sessions will be held at Bay Path’s Phillip H. Ryan Health Science Center in East Longmeadow. The first session, “The Foundation of Your Career: Landing Your First Professional Job,” was held on Feb. 25. Upcoming sessions include “Breaking Out: Orchestrating a Career Reboot” on Monday, March 4; “Do You Have the Executive Presence to Get That Promotion” on Monday, April 1; “The Next Chapter: Transitioning Back to Work After an Extended Absence” on Monday, May 6; and “Your Third Act: What’s Next?” on Monday, June 3. Each session is an independent offering.
