Out of the Nest

Now that your kids are older, it’s time to think about doing something for yourself–or your family’s budget–like going back to work. Though your skills may be a bit rusty and office technology may be a little more complicated, you’ll find that the basics of excellence at work are the same as they were when you left the workforce.

What has changed significantly, though, is how to go about looking for a job. The rules of the hunt are probably very different from what you recall, even if you’ve been out of the loop for only a year or so. But don’t despair! With some coaching, you’ll be back at the top of your game in no time.
