Laura Carey
Talent Acquisition Specialist
Laura Carey took a 12-year break from her career as an HR professional, during which time she raised her kids, acted as her dad’s primary caregiver for a year, and volunteered extensively. After a great experience volunteering at a Northwell Health hospital, Laura found a returnship opportunity at Northwell Health that would be a great fit for her. She completed her returnship in talent acquisition, and now works there full-time as a Talent Acquisition Specialist. Laura talks about her returnship experience, learning how to recruit for different types of teams, and how talking to both her fellow returnees and her peers helped her development.
