Episode 15: Carol Fishman Cohen Tells the iRelaunch Story
In the first episode of our second season, Matthew Temple, Director of Alumni Career and Professional Development at the Kellogg School of Management and an iRelaunch Advisory Board member, interviews Carol Fishman Cohen about the history of iRelaunch and its Return to Work Conference. From its early days following the publication of the book, Back on the Career Track, iRelaunch has grown to become the leader in career reentry initiatives helping employers identify and recruit professionals looking to return to work after career breaks and helping those professionals gain the confidence and skills they need to be successful in today's workforce. Carol talks with Matthew about the value of the one-day Return to Work Conference as a way to bring employers and relaunchers together for inspiration, education and networking. The day is more than inspiration and motivation. Carol talks about the concrete tips and advice employers and career relaunch professionals share with relaunchers such as what to say when an interviewer asks about an employment gap.
