I’ve been discussing returning to the work force. Those that knew me from 22-40 would laugh that I even left it. I loved working, making my own money, contribuiting to our family, all of that. I made a decent income, and worked hard, but 7 years ago my family needed me to stay home and I did it.
Now things are much different, and with two off to college in 3 years I need to bring in some more money.
The real question is, doing what? I have no desire to return to work in retail or banking, even though my positions were good and my salary good, those jobs are demanding and not what I want now.
My first goal is for something part time and flexible and then perhaps I can work my way back into something more. Management and Marketing are such broadbased areas, and my experience is sales and customer service driven. Oddly enough, I sometimes think I’d be happy in a quiet cubicle just working away…lol.
If you had to start a new path after 7 years of hiatus………what would you do?
