Many people leave the workforce for a while to care for young children or aging parents or to fight an illness.
A growing number of experienced, professional workers are trying to relaunch their careers but are finding it harder than ever in this economy. The iReLaunch conference, held in Boston, aims to give guidance on how to effectively reboot a career.
We’ll talk about what workers and businesses need to do to get the most out of this important group of people who are ready to work and contribute once again.
The iRelaunch conference will be held on November 29. Registration is still open.
