NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The New York Institute of Finance (NYIF), one of America’s oldest financial education providers, today announced a strategic partnership with iRelaunch, the leading and most comprehensive career reentry resource, to help mid-career professionals who have taken time off from work build the skills they need to reenter today’s competitive workforce.
iRelaunch members will now have access to a selection of customized solutions from NYIF’s range of financial courses and world-leading instructors. NYIF offers in-person and remote courses via eLearning, which accommodates the differing schedules of professionals on career breaks for childcare, eldercare or other reasons.
“Our partnership with NYIF will allow our community of nearly 10,000 professionals to make sure they are up-to-date on the regulatory requirements, operational changes and financial tools that may have changed while they were out of the workforce,” said iRelaunch CEO and co-founder Carol Fishman Cohen. “Taking NYIF courses will allow them to return to the job market feeling current, more confident, and ready to hit the ground running.”
As part of their agreement, NYIF will be a sponsor at the 2015 iRelaunch Return to Work Conference later in the year. Lee Arthur, Managing Director of New York Institute of Finance & Execsense, said the partnership continues his organization’s efforts to design learning opportunities that meet the needs of potential students.
“The smartest financial companies today are looking for talent beyond traditional campus recruiting. iRelaunch is helping prepare experienced professionals for a successful second act in their careers, and we’re proud NYIF can be a part of it.”
