Career Calling

Some Good News about Returning to Work.

What should a mother or father do who is looking to return to work?  I would recommend reading Meg Graham’s article in today’s Grid from The Chicago Sun-Times.  This article talks about resources and strategies available for professionals who have taken time off to raise children or care for sick relatives.  I recommend it as a great resource.

What I would add to Graham’s article is that parents and others who have to leave their jobs need to be proactive in planning how they will stay professionally viable while they are out of work.  They need to plan to volunteer or work part time in a way that will involve the skills and knowledge they will need when they return to work.  Like all good career management, knowing how to enter, exit, and re-enter the job market takes planning and foresight.
