Transitioning back to work

· Career breaks

Are you someone who is transitioning back into the workforce after a long absence? Perhaps you had took time out to start a family, had other personal commitments or maybe you just wanted a sabbatical? The prospect can be a daunting one but, with the right strategy and advice, you can make it a smooth one.

Here are my 5 top tips to help you get organised:

1. It is vital to reflect on your career goals

2. Audit your current skills

3. Identify areas you need to work on or upskill yourself.

4. Be prepared to leverage the power of your network-we all have one even if it just your immediate family and friends.

5. Making sure that you stay commercially aware regarding what has been happening in your industry and sector is vital as this will allow you to speak with confidence about it. Technology is disrupting industries on an exponential basis- show you have your finger on the pulse.

 

These tips will give you the momentum and boost you need.
