Working After Baby

Good news is that with the right attitude and mindset returning to work can be a smooth transition. Here is some advice that you might find helpful when returning to the workforce.

What is MY plan?

Try not to focus on what other women are doing. Every family and household is different take a “personal inventory of what they want and expect from their careers before launching their job search.”

What are your Objectives?

Staying clear on objectives enables mothers to ask specifically for what they need and expect from an employer.

Keep realistic goals

The notion of the perfect mom, CEO, good cook and Sunday schoolteacher is unrealistic.”

Can do and Will do

More employers are now focusing more on candidate’s personality and attitude.  Employers are looking for employees that are motivated and can successfully correlate their skills with the demands of the job. 

Own your career “gap”

Don’t try to hide your time away from the workforce; explaining your absence will eliminate any ambiguity, says Woods.

Restructure your resume

List  key accomplishments on page one and chronological experience on page two.

Role-play your interviews

Practicing interview questions and why you have decided to come back to work will help you perform better and nail your key messages.

Keep current with your industry/former company

Stay in touch with your employer, coworkers and prior managers during your opt-out time and follow what’s happening.
