Career Re-Entry Series: Where do we go from here?

Posted by on 08 March 2012 in Be Informed, Career "Re-Entry" Series, Mom as Manager | 0 comments

We have come to the end of our Career Re-Entry series, and with it comes a few of my reflections about where we go from here. My daughter Fiona even co-stars in the video, helping me clearly demonstrate the real-life challenges of keeping all of our jobs in focus!

 

 

 

 

 So, let’s review…

1. Support is essential. There is no room for questioning the decisions that other moms make about how they spend their time. What we need to be doing instead is supporting them in what works best for their families, even if it is different than your own choices. Enough said, right?

2. Think long term. It is easy to get distracted by everyday life and never take the time to think about the future. But it is important to keep the end in mind, because two years…five years…ten years can sneak up on you like a blink of an eye. For me, this means thinking about steps I should be taking now to position myself for career opportunities that may present themselves. What does that look like for you?

3. We will be back! This series may be over, but we will be back to address more career related topics in the future to help us support each other and provide career tips and reminders. If you have any topics that you would like to see addressed, please let me know!
