Meet the Author

CAROL FISHMAN COHEN AND VIVIAN STEIR RABIN are the co-founders of career reentry programming company iRelaunch. iRelaunch has helped hundreds of women and men on career break return to the workforce through its programs, events, and content for employers, universities, organizations, and individuals. iRelaunch's signature product is the iRelaunch Return to Work Conference, held in major U.S. cities and in London. Cohen and Rabin are frequent speakers on the career reentry topic and are regularly quoted in the national press.

Cohen and Rabin are both Harvard Business School graduates and relaunchers themselves; between them, they have nine kids and they each returned to work after multi-year career breaks before writing Back on the Career Track and starting iRelaunch. They understand each phase of the "relaunch process" first hand. Cohen's return to investment firm Bain Capital after 11 years out of the full time workforce is documented in a Harvard Business School case study about professional career reentry. Carol and Vivian can be reached at info@iRelaunch.com.
