Do I list "stay-at-home mom" on my résumé?

How can I find a family-friendly office?

Should I return to my old field, or go in a new direction?

If you're a stay-at-home mom considering going back to work, these are some of the questions that have likely come to mind. Returning to the workforce can be a daunting prospect. It requires reigniting old contacts (including those with coworkers once your junior), marketing yourself strategically, and building confidence -- whether you've been out of the workforce for two, six, or fifteen years.

Carol Fishman Cohen and Vivian Steir Rabin understand, because they've been there. As Harvard MBAs who successfully relaunched their own careers after staying home full-time with their children, they know it can be done -- with careful planning, strategizing, and creativity. Now, in Back on the Career Track, they offer a prescriptive, seven-step program that includes:

  • Assessing career options and updating job skills
  • Networking and preparing for interviews
  • Getting the family on board.

Packed with expert advice from career counselors and recruiters, and insightful stories from others who have been through the process, this book also offers an inside look at what employers and universities are doing to help relaunchers today -- including how many businesses are recognizing them as valuable assets.

Frequent speakers to women's groups, professional schools, and corporations, Cohen and Rabin provide a thorough, unique program from two experts on the topic of career reentry. Back on the Career Track is sure to become the classic guide in the field.
