Open to alumni and the community.

A concentrated half-day program that brings you strategies and actionable steps to relaunch your career.

Hear career reentry authority Carol Fishman Cohen at a university-sponsored or corporate-sponsored event near you.

Attend an Information-Packed Morning

  • Keynote: Top Strategies for Returning to Work
  • Workshop: Resumes, Interviews, and Job Search Tactics
  • Networking and Q&A


"The first thing I noticed is that I was surrounded by other professionals ​...  like myself, who were in the same position as me and shared the same bulk of concerns and hurdles. The sense of camaraderie alone, was priceless. ​...  When I later reviewed my notebook from the iRelaunch course, it was brimming with fierce underlines, bullet points, follow-up notes, websites, contacts, and most importantly, a step-by-step plan, to accomplish my return to work goals. I strongly recommend this program for anyone looking to return to work after a career break​." – Attendee at FastTrack Event at Georgetown University

Who Should Attend
Alumni and community members who:

  • Have taken time off to raise children, care for aging or ill relatives, volunteer, pursue an interest…
  • Feel isolated or stuck
  • Are eager to learn proven job search strategies for relaunchers that work in today’s economy
  • Are excited (and scared) to start the next phase of their career journey

"As someone who is just beginning the relaunch process this event was motivating, encouraging and timely. I enjoyed Carol's speaking style and personal stories from her own experience returning to the paid workforce. Networking with others at the event left me feeling excited and positive about the possibilities. Thank you for a valuable morning!" – Attendee at University of Denver FastTrack.

"I went to an iRelaunch event on a Tuesday, spent Wednesday re-vamping my resume, began sending it out on Thursday, and the following Tuesday I received a call from a potential employer. That session alone gave me the clarity and focus I needed in my job search and ultimately led me to my current job."
