154 - How to job-hunt and go back to work after a long break

October 3, 2022

Many professionals have not looked for a new job in many years. They are either a) in the workforce but have worked for the same organization for a long time, or b) have been on a career break for some time and have not looked for work for over a year. Job hunting and returning to work after a long break can be challenging. In this episode, I provide some out-of-the-box advice to make this process less stressful and, hopefully, more fun.
