Since we launched our first Return-to-Work Conference in 2008, over 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.
