What can you do to improve your chances of securing employment?
Be clear about your flexibility requirements and demonstrate how your skills and experience is suitable to the job being advertised. Also, know how much you are worth. Unfortunately, many women will accept a reduced salary because they are grateful for the opportunity to return to work. No! Your career to date and the challenges of parenthood should be acknowledged in your remuneration. If you have been out of the workplace for a while, consider doing volunteer work to re-engage with the workplace on a non-paid basis. This will build your self-confidence and re-activate your work skills.
