Professional women who have taken a break from their careers, for example, to start a family or care for an aging parent, often struggle to make the transition back in. Doubts about rusty skills, how to explain the gap on their resume, or how to fit into the current work environment can sap confidence and create barriers to moving the re-entry process forward.
If you’re in this position, I have a wonderful resource for you! Phase 2Careers is hosting a day of information, resources, networking and support for women just like you. Professional Women Returning to Work will be held Friday, March 20, 9:45 am -2:00 pm at the Sobrato Center for Nonprofits in Redwood Shores.
I’m thrilled to share that I will be a panelist in the “Preparing for Your Work Transition” session, which will also include other career transition experts.
The keynote address will be: “Using Your Life Experience for a Successful Career Transition.” Other activities include an employer roundtable, the opportunity to meet one-on-one with career coaches, and a resource area with a vast variety of educational and employment resources.
