Weekly Workforce Roundup: September 20th- September 26th

Here’s last week’s roundup–for some reason this didn’t get published!

One highlight and reminder–Early registration for the 2012 Jobs and Workforce Summit closes THIS THURSDAY, October 4.  Don’t forget to register–you don’t want to miss the opportunity to hear Secretaries Greg Bialecki, Joanne Goldstein, and Paul Reville discuss Massachusetts’ new strategies to elevate career pathways.

Please add anything we missed by using the “comments” field.
