How to Return to the Workforce After an Extended Absence

I frequently interview candidates for open positions in my organization and am often asked what advice I have for women returning to the workforce. The most important piece of advice I can give you is to not apologize for leaving your career to raise your children. Be confident in presenting your skills and be assertive about what you have to offer a prospective employer. Finding a job is not easy right now but the market is slowly getting better and there is more opportunity now than there has been in the last two years. Before you launch your job search, consider these steps:

 

Decide if you are going back to your industry or starting over. Get clear on what kind of job you are looking for. This will help you focus your job search and help others in your network be on the look out for opportunities for you. Make sure you develop your elevator speech for the kind of job you are looking for and what skills you have to offer.
