Thinking about returning to work, but not necessarily to the exact same job you did before? If so, this is the webinar for you! Watch our session to learn all about career pivots, how they can be an opportunity for reinvention, and how to communicate what you have to offer and where you want to go.
You’ll hear from experts who specialize in advising returners and from two professionals who successfully returned to the workforce while making a career change. This free webinar is offered in partnership with Après, a career site for moms going back to work or pivoting.
