Reinvent can help you successfully return to work after years of caring for your family. For some women looking to re-enter the workforce, a full-time, stable job with benefits is the only path back. For others, re-entry needs to involve part-time, home- or project-based work. Let's find out!

A research done by the Economist, have shown that 82% of trailing spouses or partners had a university degree and 90% of them were forced to relinquish their own jobs in order to pursue their partner’s move abroad. Of these 90%, only 35% worked during their time living overseas. However, most would have liked to.

So, what is holding them back?

Return to work coaching

Returning to work after a break can be challenging. Following a career break, we often start with a negative mind-set: low self-confidence and self-belief, lower salary expectations than before a career break and a broad and general anxiety over our past experiences.

However, there are so many examples of people who have successfully returned to work after years of caring for their family. For some women looking to re-enter the workforce, a full-time, stable job with benefits is the only path back. For others, re-entry needs to involve part-time, home- or project-based work.

Finding a career you enjoy can in itself be challenging, but what happens when you (for whatever reason) need to take a career break? For some women, having children and caring for their family brings with it a pause on their career.
