Returning to work after a break can be very challenging and daunting. Following a career break, we often start with a negative mind-set: low self-confidence and self-belief, lower salary expectations than before a career break and a broad and general anxiety over our past experiences.
However, there are so many examples of people who have successfully returned to work after years of caring for their family. For some individuals looking to re-enter the workforce, a full-time, stable job with benefits is the only path back. For others, re-entry needs to involve part-time, home- or project-based work.
