How to Relaunch Your Career Successfully
By grownandflown on October 31, 2012
Interviewing may require new clothing and, for once, you can justify shopping as an investment. Enjoy.
Jobs do not come to people sitting behind a computer screen simply filling out forms. Jobs come from informational interviews, from talking to friends and acquaintances about their companies and from volunteering in organizations that soon realize that they cannot live without you.
Look for jobs in unexpected places and remain open to where your skills stack up. The world has changed even in the short time that you may have been out of the job market, keep your mind open to opportunities you might never have thought of before.
IRelaunch is a multiplatform back-to-work strategy organization. Through years of study and interviews, Cohen and Rabin have co-authored a book and developed a website, webinars, coaching circles and a series of highly successful conferences. The founders and their staff are passionate about helping women return to the right job. Over half of the iRelaunch conference participants returned to work within a year of attending the conference and attributed their relaunch to strategies learned at the iRelaunch conference. Cohen and Rabin have run the conference fourteen times. At each conference there are nearly three hundred women who all look like they are on a client visit for JP Morgan or McKinsey. Even if you’re not walking into, or out of one of those places, it is a real shot in the arm to be in this sophisticated, engaged and insanely smart group and to hear that their stories are just like yours.
