If you’re coming back from a career break, you have been furloughed, laid off, or in a career rut, you know what it’s like to feel anxious and unsure of your next move.
Life is too short to waste in the wrong career or be stuck in a place where you are unmotivated and underappreciated. If you feel like your resume gap is the big elephant in the room, it can be intimidating and overwhelming. What if you could get in the driver’s seat and take control of your career? Isn’t it time you reinvested–in yourself?
Serial technopreneur, career coach, and author Reena Gupta and her co-author, writer and speaker Rebecca Cullen have written a highly topical yet timeless book, Career Interrupted due out this spring. Career Interrupted is not simply another one-size-fits-all advice book, it is the bible you will keep on your desk for years to come because the authors’ interactive methodology resonates on a very personal level.
In the exercises at the end of every chapter, you will take a deep dive so you can assess your values, strengths, and weaknesses and then align your core beliefs and talents with the right career path. At the end of the book, you will have a complete work-life canvas so you have a concrete roadmap to achieve that ever-elusive work-life harmony.
Jobs Now and In the Future
Finding meaningful work, a paycheck and a purpose create emotional and financial well being.
It was a pleasure to have Adrianne Nelson, Senior Director, Staffing Industry Analyst, on our webinar held on June 30th, 2020. Her message to job seekers who are currently transitioning into new careers or looking to re-enter the work- force after a break was simple, yet reassuring; skill, re-skill and re-invent.
In spite of the gloom and doom around us, we at Mom Relaunch believe that her message has a refreshingly positive ring to it.
Even as the pandemic rages through the world and leaves behind tragedies of unimaginable proportions, including the loss of jobs and income, it is indeed heartening to learn from Adrianne that there is, surprisingly, hope!
