Are you a stay-at-home parent? Maybe you worked when your kids were young, then went on hiatus when your third one was born. You resolved to re-enter the workplace as soon as they hit…..well, you had a magical timetable in mind. Was it pre-K, or…ahem, 4th grade? That time came and went, and you’re still in a holding pattern.
More than that: something may be nagging at you—intimidation? A mysterious divide might seem to separate you from the working women you know—how did they never have a hiccup in their career journey? Or how about those tech-y post-Millenials? They have big footprints all over the new workplace landscape.
Yes, there are challenges to re-entry. But Laborocity is here to help. This company is at the center of a can-do wave of workers. Moms and Dads returning to the workforce play a big role here. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, people ages 55 and older comprise the fastest-growing segment of workers in the country. Forty percent of them work now—that figure is expected to pop through 2024.
Laborocity can be just the ticket to re-entry. That goes for office or customized business, event planning, or warehouse and construction work. It’s especially true if your sights are set on full-time work. Temp- to full-time can be a successful route to this goal. The magic of the work world you once observed is really just hard work when you’re in it. Put one foot in front of the other until, voila!—you’re back working again. Our Doers know this.
“As soon as I started working again, I thought: I can do this,” says Erin Bradley, a contracts attorney placed by Laborocity at a Westchester, PA pharma company. After a several-year career break, Bradley enjoys reclaiming her old working self. “I like contributing to the family finances again; I like wearing professional clothes instead of jeans. I like using my education and having colleagues again,” she says.
Laborocity takes seriously the Moms and Dads who left the workplace for parenthood and are poised for re-entry. We don’t see a gap in your CV; we see your best self and potential fulfilled. We need your talents! You might need to brush up on a few things, but that’s easy to take charge of. Here are a few tips to ready yourself for the workplace:
- Confidently check the “Proficient” box regarding office technology. Take a refresher course in Excel, PowerPoint, Google Office, or Salesforce at your local community college.
- Position your volunteer work during your career break as the talented job it was. Have it reflect something in line with your old career: “If you used to be an accountant, show that you were Treasurer of the school board.”
- Polish your resume so that it’s skills-based rather than chronology-based. This emphasis lets your talents shine through.
You have your talents, your work ethic, and Laborocity on your side. There’s no stopping you now.
