Do you feel like your work/life balance is off kilter? (Do you even have work/life balance?)

Do you feel like you are drifting in a job that no longer excites or satisfies you?

Do your wonder whether your work is meeting your needs - for income, advancement, or personal fulfillment?

Did you leave the workforce for family reasons and are you ready to jump back in?

Our interactive panel will discuss how to identify and achieve career goals that make sense for you.
