More About Coming Back from a Career Break (Lake Bluff Public Library)

Is it possible to rejoin the professional workforce after a career break of 5, 10, or 15 years? There are many reasons one might take a career break, but regardless of the reason, heading back to the workforce can be daunting. How do you convince employers that, in spite of your hiatus, you’re excited and ready to work? Having a strategic plan, the right tools and an effective process to follow are the keys to making that happen. This presentation will help you understand; the dos and don’ts of a successful search, the significance of using technology and social media in your search and that networking is critical but not as scary as it seems. Mary Beth Barrett-Newman is the founder of 2nd Career Coach and a career advisor at Career Resource Center.

If you're a business owner or you wish to promote a for-profit event, your event may be subject to the policies of your local Town Planner publisher. Some publishers may charge a nominal fee for such events, or reject them if they compete with other events from paying sponsors.

Please keep in mind that Town Planner is a family-friendly publication and we reserve the right to reject any event that is deemed offensive, obscene, or otherwise inappropriate for inclusion on our site.
