Here’s what we covered:
Topic #1 – What do you think of Returnship programs? It’s been a thing for a couple of years, but it appears as if it’s growing.
Topic #2 – While the discussion of gag orders due to severance agreements is not new, are there incentives for companies to offer severance when all is said and done?
Topic #3 – As career practitioners, are there key strategies older workers are successfully using to re-enter the workforce? If so, what are they? If not, what’s holding them back?
Topic #4 – Are there any indicators you’ve seen as practitioners this will change with the holidays approaching? Is there one thing you recommend the long-term unemployed should do (other than network)?
