Keeping a Career in Motion

Transitioning back into the workforce after an absence can be difficult. Sharon Reed Abboud, author of All Moms Work: Short-Term Career Strategies for Long-Range Success, offers several strategies for helping stay-at-home moms keep their careers in motion in order to ease the eventual transition back to work. While Abboud focuses primarily on stay-at-home moms, people who have experienced time away from work for other reasons will also benefit from the following strategies:
  • Network wisely.

  • Keep Up-to-Date.

  • Build Your Resume By Volunteering.

  • Consider Part-Time as a Possibility.

  • Join the Telecommuting Tidal Wave.

  • Consult or Freelance.

  • Start a Business.

  • Blog or Teach.
