Prepare to Launch
Let’s face it; if you’re here, you’ve given more than a passing thought to returning to work.
Maybe you're wondering where you fit in today's workplace: should you go back to what you left? would they take you? should you pivot into that new role or industry that seems interesting?
Perhaps you've been applying for jobs and can't seem to land an interview.
Or maybe you're getting in the door, but you don't know how to talk convincingly about that big gap in your career.
Whatever the case, you're probably feeling stuck. And here's why:
Without structure and support, most would-be career relaunchers get completely lost. They become paralyzed by the competing advice they read and hear - most of it unreliable. They’re intimidated by digital job search and networking tools. They lack clarity and confidence about what skills they offer and what work they can do - and they feel totally defeated when they realize that they’re going about it all wrong. As an already busy woman, you can’t afford to waste your time and energy doing it wrong.
And you don't have to! We, and our renowned Career Relaunch Course, are here to help.
The Prepare to Launch U Career Relaunch Course is offered three times per year, Winter, Spring and Fall, by application.
With weekly live coaching and instructional calls, and three modules of online learning, the Career Relaunch Course fully prepares you to return to the workplace.
In Module I, you will uncover your values, strengths, skills, and much more to learn Who You Are Now.
In Module II, you will begin to define Where You Are Going, and identify (and develop strategies to overcome) What is Getting In The Way.
Then, in Module III, you will learn the skills (like networking, interviewing and negotiating), create the tools (like résumé, LinkedIn profile, and elevator pitch), and receive the emotional support and inspiration you need for your successful Relaunch!

Students Learn Together
Returning to work can be a daunting process, that’s why we don’t let you go it alone. Instead, as a PTLU student, you’ll be part of a course cohort of other relaunchers taking the journey with you. Together, you will take the course with us in ten manageable chunks over ten defined weeks. Each Friday, we will connect live via Zoom to review what was learned, answer your questions, and keep you motivated and on track.
Our students rave about the cohort experience. They love how it keeps them engaged, accountable and energized every step of the way. They meet likeminded people and develop friendships – many of which continue long after the ten weeks.

Let Us Be Your Guides!

We have spent a combined 30+ years helping women return to work after career breaks – and we’ve been those women, too!
As expert career coaches, you benefit from our decades of research and experience, and our conviction that EVERY woman can relaunch her career successfully – if she puts in the work.
But knowing what ‘work’ to do, is the challenge. It’s a lot more than just dusting off an old resumé and posting it online.
We know what works and have assembled our formulas for success into our course.
Are you ready to stop thinking about going back to work and start doing it?
