Guest: Carol Fishman Cohen, CEO and Co-Founder of iRelaunch  “Beware of the gap.” That was the warning drilled into me during a career skills and resume writing course near the end of college. Employers do not look kindly on an unexplained employment gap on your resume. Which makes getting back into the workforce after time off to take care of family or deal with a health crisis an even bigger challenge than finding your first job out of college.  The solution, according to Carol Fishman Cohen is to do like you did fresh out of college – get an internship – or a returnship as Cohen calls it.
