Six Tips I Learned at the iRelaunch Return to Work Conference

Take-aways from the Conference to help you relaunch
 

Three days after iRelaunch‘s Return to Work Conferencein New York, there are a number of highlights that have stuck with me. Here they are:

  • Get a business card. It should include your name, email address (a professional one), a phone number (cell if your home message is unprofessional), and the three optional items — your LinkedIn page web address, your home address, and your photo (so people will remember you).
  • Some companies will not even interview you if you don’t have a LinkedIn profile.
  • Think of your career break as a gift, an opportunity to figure out what you really want to do.
  • This from employers: don’t be concerned about your technological obsolescence. You can learn technology. (More on that in another post.)
  • Relaunchers are a valuable and desirable asset. They offer far more experience and skills than someone fresh out of college.
  • Most relaunchers spend too much time sweating their resumes. The majority of successful relaunchers find a job through contacts.
