For many people who want to return to work after a career break, reentry can pose unique challenges—as well as the opportunity to envision a career that fits with your current life, interests, and professional strengths.

Join career reentry expert Carol Fishman Cohen, chair and co-founder of iRelaunch, for a webinar with practical advice about how to tackle tough issues in career reentry and successfully return to work. She’ll share best practices about: 

  • How to get started when returning to work after a hiatus 
  • How to approach a career change 
  • How to update your skills 
  • How to know whether you should return to work at a lower level or lower compensation
  • How to respond when asked about your career break, or when you’re dubbed “overqualified” 
  • How to deal with ageism

Carol relaunched her own career at Bain Capital after an 11 year career break before co-authoring a book on the topic and co-founding iRelaunch, which works with over 70 global companies to build and expand career reentry programs. The iRelaunch community numbers over 75,000 “relaunchers” who are returning to work after career breaks from one to more than 20 years. 

The event is limited to Business School Alumni.
