At our Women Returners ‘Back to Your Future’ Conference earlier this summer, our CEO Julianne Miles led a session on how to get focused and develop your return to work career direction. Here are some of the key takeouts.
We find that many returners adopt one of these unhelpful strategies when they want to return to work:
Treating it like a research project with lots of thinking but little action
Taking a scattergun approach – randomly applying for a range of jobs online
Waiting to ‘find their passion’ or for the ‘perfect job’ to come along.
