The Self-Expression and Leadership Program project of New Jersey resident Mary Ellen Keller is the creation of a Career Awareness Day designed to assist women who have been out of the workforce for a long time. As detailed in the East Brunswick Sentinel, the event, to be held on March 14, will offer a wide range of different resources, including breakout sessions, resume tips, networking, speakers, skill development, interviewing advice and more.
Keller, a vice president at Morgan Stanley, formed the Next Step Network (NSN), which is putting on the event, supported by the sponsorship of the Jewish Family and Vocational Service of Middlesex County (JFVS).
Keller’s passion for making a difference in this area comes from her own experience as a divorced mother of two who needed to re-enter the workforce with little confidence or prospects. As she worked and progressed through her career, she became the go to person in her family for career assistance.
The event is taking place from 12-4pm at the East Brunswick Jewish Center at 511 Ryders Lane. To register, volunteer, or get more information contact Lisa Fiore of JFVS at 732-777-1940 or LisaF@jsvs.org.
