"My Wife and I attended Restart last year and our expectations were neutral with the normal curiosity. Half way through the day we both agreed that this is completely out of the realm of our expectations. Restart is structure, it is motivation, it is a soft reality check that gently wakes you up and points you in a direction. The staff/volunteers are genuine real and normal people like You. Go with an open mind, don’t have expectations like we did, embrace and cherish the day."
"After 25 years on Wall Street and having to reinvent myself Restart was an integral part of my rebuilding and motivated me to stay the course. I dabbled, I tried a new career, I gave it a shot and it was not for me. Now I am in a new role but back to my roots. Back to what I know and feel comfortable with. I owe Restart for the knowledge of learning who I am, what my strengths and weaknesses are. I highly and often do recommend attending Restart."
"ReStart helped me keep focus on networking- person to person and social events. The leaders are truly dedicated to help participants find success in pursuing their new career."
"I have told all of my friends and family how amazing the ReStart conference was for me. I went in with an open mind and not knowing what to expect. Every leader spoke with passion and had a story that resonated with me. Applying for a new job is very scary, especially after having a steady career for 10 years and then getting laid off. This community was exactly what I needed to get my confidence back. I was mind blown of how valuable all of the tools were, and for a small cost - a Saturday morning. I consider myself a fairly driven person, but I was lost and wasn't sure what my direction was after losing my job."
"Thanks to ReStart, I am so much more confident in my career transition than before! The ReStart team is full of people who are knowledgeable, kind, and generous. Definitely check out this organization and upcoming events if you are unemployed, underemployed, or in transition."
