Hello Supermom! Oh, wait, what’s that? Not quite feeling that way today?
We get it!
Has your master’s degree or doctorate been collecting dust while you swept Cheerios up off the floor, got spit up on, climbed all over, ran all over town for pickups and dropoffs to and from school, to practices, recitals and games… for oh, the last decade or two?
Now that those seasons of life are over, maybe you are looking at who you used to be compared to who you have now become. Maybe you are wondering what it all means, as well as how to put it all together again. Maybe you are also wondering if it’s even possible to pick back up where you left off.
Well, is it?
Returning To Work After Children
If you are considering returning to work after children, the workplace has changed and so have the skills required to be in it. Yes, there is value in your degree and experience — and yes, there are also ways of successfully reentering the workforce.
Here is where we come in to help.
At Opting Back In, we have walked the path that you are looking at ahead of you. We know what it takes to get back into the workforce, as well as the challenges and obstacles that come along with that.
We’ve developed a program that consists of several helpful and informative steps to guide you towards successfully reentering the workforce. Getting plugged in to what’s happening at OBI will help to bridge the technology gap, as well as help you develop a plan of action to achieve your goals. We also offer you the support you need to do that through our local community.
Getting Informed Series
Our Getting Informed Series consists of webinars and talks — all free — designed to help you brush up on skills for today’s workplace. Topics range from current workplace technology to creating a road map for your goals. Our Getting Informed Series also covers topics such as updating your resume and personal assessments. To see what’s ahead, be sure to sign-up for our e-newsletter or check the schedule of upcoming events.
Sometimes it takes a little more than brushing up on your skills to get back into the swing of things. If a more direct approach will work best for you, then we recommend our one-on-one coaching. We can help with resume reviewing, personal assessments and more. If this is what you are looking for, e-mail us today.
For a more in-depth approach to certain topics, check out our list of class intensives. These classes are designed to help you jump head first into your new skills. You will take a hands on approach to learning in these multi-hour intensives.
Building a supportive community can also support you in successfully opting back in to the workforce. Our networking events and coffee and conversations, will connect you with others making the transition into the workforce, as well as a local professional community of support. Join us at an upcoming networking event soon.
When it comes to returning to work after children, a multi-faceted approach will help you make a smooth transition. We would love for you to join us soon. In the meantime, we’ll let you get back to being the awesome Supermom that you are.
