MADE THE DECISION BUT DON’T KNOW WHERE TO START?
- A stay-at- home mom or dad ready to re-enter the workforce in a professional capacity?
- A military spouse who has relocated regularly and has gaps in your work history?
- Long-term unemployed and having trouble getting an interview?
- Returning to work after long-term illness or an ailing relative care role?
- Unexpectedly seeking employment following a divorce, death, or change in family circumstances?
Returning to the workforce can seem like a daunting task for anybody that has a noticeable gap in paid employment, but you should never be nervous that the gap is a showstopper.
YOUR RESUME IS YOUR SALES PITCH
You are valuable. You have the same skills and attributes you had before your career break, and your life experiences out of the paid workforce may well have added education, skills, maturity and perspective that make you a more appealing employee than you were before.
You just need to market yourself in the right way.

CASE STUDY: Stay-at- home mom seeks to returns to professional role with flexible schedule.
Background: Angela had a six-year career in Accounting before taking a 5-year break to raise a young family. Factor in a change in location, and she felt overwhelmed about how to find a rewarding position, let alone convince the new employer that she wanted a flexible schedule that would allow some days working from home.
Services Provided: LinkedIn Profile, Resume and Cover Letter
Result: Angela wasn’t just offered one job by her target employer; she was given her pick of two and the flexible work arrangement she sought. Her career is right back on track and accelerating ahead of the professional roles she held prior to having children.
Coming off a break in my career, my confidence level was suffering. When I saw my new resume it reminded me that I have tremendous value to offer an employer. Melanie gave me the words to sell my skills in a confident and completely accurate way. – Angela
