Return to New Work After Having Children
You're thinking of your return to work and you want something different.
You have some vague ideas for a new career but are feeling unsure of where to start or even what options you have. You're worried about how your time off may have affected your career. Feeling anxious about making a change, juggling child care, not knowing the value of your skills and a lack of confidence may be holding you back from starting on a new career path.
Identifying your skills and matching them to different careers is a good start. Caring for your children full time may have given you a new host of useful skills that you can transfer into the workplace. Presenting these new skills in the right way on resumés and in interviews will help you immensely in moving forward with your new career. Fitting your new family lifestyle into a new career takes a strong plan, one that works for you and your family.
