STA Job Re-Entry


STA’s Job Re-Entry, or “STAR” initiative assists in the needs of individuals who have been displaced from their jobs and are seeking re-entry into the financial services industry. STAR leverages the established network, resources and values of STA to raise awareness on the needs of these individuals while providing useful resources and services.

Individuals do not have to be Members of STA or an STA Affiliate to qualify for benefits provided through STAR.

Guiding Principles & Core Actions

Preparation – STAR educates employed individuals on steps that can be taken now to best prepare for an unexpected job loss.

Reach Out – STAR proactively reaches out to individuals upon their displacement and offers a STAR Packet that contains information helpful in their transition, as well as updates on market trends and industry networking events.

Networking – Through grants funded by the STA Foundation, STAR offers networking packages (see below) that enable qualified individuals to attend pre-approved educational and networking events, which are useful for re-entry into the financial services industry.

Upcoming Events

STAR will offer a LIMITED number of complimentary registrations for its annual conference. Details, including how to sign up, will be made public closer to the event date. To be eligible, individuals must be in-between jobs and seeking re-entry into financial services.
