About the workshop


Are you considering returning to the workforce and need a bit of guidance, support and help getting there? Whether you’ve been out of the workforce for eight months or eight years the thought of re-entering may be extremely daunting. The NoW’s Return to the Workforce Workshop is designed to make it much less intimidating and much more attainable.

The day consists of bringing together an intimate group of women in a welcoming, judgement free and warm space to explore, connect and learn the necessary tools to return to the workforce. We will explore and identify what it is you want to do, tap into and expand your confidence, identify your networks and connections, and create a strategic road map to re-enter the workforce. The Return to the Workforce Workshop was founded by Sarah O’Brien Hammond, Founder of the The NoW and an expert at helping women identify and land their dream jobs. As one of New York City’s top recruiters, Sarah has been successfully placing women in jobs for over 16 years. She knows first hand what employers look for and how to help women not only land the interview but the job as well.
