Returning To Work After Parenting

Returning To Work After Parenting

This topic is receiving a lot of media coverage - articles and surveys in Business Week, The Wall Street Journal, Real Simple, Newsweek, Time, the Washington Post, the New York Times, and other newspapers and magazines. Many books on this subject are being published. To read descriptions of some, please go to Links and Downloads.

Making the decision to come back to work after parenting results in many challenges.  Though many of these are similar to those that other people job-hunting or searching for a new career are facing, there are some important differences that need to be carefully considered and addressed:

  • What's the best way to describe and handle gaps in my resume? ...And how do I talk about these during an interview?
  • Are there full-time positions that will allow me to leave at 3:30 PM to pick up my children at school?
  • Will I be able to make the same salary as when I left?
  • How long should my search take?

 

 

If you want help in exploring your options and planning next steps, it's time to have a cup of coffee with Mike in person or virtually.
