iRelaunch Annual Return-to-Work Conference

Sold out for the last six years.

Aren’t you always glad after you’ve pushed yourself to get out to connect with others?

You'll come to learn and make connections. You'll leave motivated and with a game plan.

"Energizing and Informative. I traveled 600 miles to attend - definitely a good decision."

“This is the best time/money/energy spent in the job search process.”


Since we launched our first Return-to-Work Conference in 2008, more than 4,500 professionals have joined us for a jam-packed day of expert guidance and concrete direction and to talk to employers about job opportunities.

Good news. More than 50 percent of attendees relaunched their careers within one year of our conference, most within six months.

“I finally had the “a-ha moment” that got me out of my rut during a conversation at the iRelaunch Conference that I ponied up for. It led me to the great job I have now as a tenure-track business law professor.”
