As Presented by Cancer and Careers (

Navigating a cancer diagnosis is one thing.  Navigating the diagnosis while seeking employment or contemplating a career change is altogether different.  Cancer and Careers is a non profit organization whose primary focus is to empower and educate people with cancer to thrive in their workplace, by providing advice, interactive tools and educational events.

The organization hosts a webinar series around a myriad of topics, including the one that follows surrounding job searches.

Looking for a new position during or after cancer treatment can seem daunting, but it’s more than possible. This webinar aides in providing tips on creating an effective resume, sharpening your interviewing skills (and dealing with questions on resume gaps) and more.
