Opting Back into Corporate America

  • This course is expressly designed for parents who took time off from corporate America to raise their children, and are now getting ready to return.  You’ve been home for a few years:  What will you put on your LinkedIn profile?  What will you say in interviews?  Who will be willing to interview you?  This course is for people who understand that it is their responsibility to create the opportunities their ambitions demand.  Whether you are seeking to return in six weeks, six months, or six years, this class will give you the knowledge and the ability to start positioning yourself, on and offline.  During the seminar, you will cover networking using social media (Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, Facebook to name a few), and writing a winning LinkedIn profile.  If you’ve spent the past five years in the changing room instead of the boardroom, this course is for you.
