Reflect, Reimagine, and Relaunch: Pivoting Your Career After a Break


Career breaks are rare opportunities to develop new interests, passions and skills outside the workplace. If you can learn to glean new insights and reimagine your ideal role during a career break, you can leverage your time away from work into a successful career relaunch. In this talk, Managing Director of iRelaunch Elizabeth Gish will share success stories and tips on how to apply your new experiences to your elevator pitch, your CV and LinkedIn, the interview, and ultimately, a new career.
