Is it possible to rejoin the professional workforce after a career break of 5, 10 or 15 years? No matter the reason for your break – parenting, elder care or a medical reason - having a strategic plan, the right tools and an effective process to follow can be the difference between a successful job search and a fruitless and frustrating one. During this webinar we will discuss topics including how to network effectively even when you aren’t sure of what you want to do, the importance of staying current or getting yourself up to speed and why reaching out to former colleagues, even after many years can still be helpful.
This webinar will help you understand:
• the dos and dont's of a successful search
• the importance of staying current and embracing technology and social media in your search
• that “Networking” is critical and not a scary as it seems
