Getting Back into the Workforce
Millions of educated, professional women temporarily leave their jobs to stay home and raise their children despite the hard work put into earning a degree and climbing the corporate ladder. So wouldnâ€™t quitting, even for a few years, kill a career? Not according to Monica Samuels and J.C. Conklin, who launched MomsNextMove.com, a new site in March designed to educate women on how to successfully leave and then return to the workforce because they have chosen to spend time with their children.
â€œPeople thought I was crazy to leave a salary and paid vacations to stay home with my child,â€ explains Monica, “But I had a plan, which is vital before you go storming into your bossâ€™ office to announce your departure. Thereâ€™s more to quitting than saying the words. Thereâ€™s strategy involved.â€ That experience inspired her book, Comeback Moms, written for moms wanting to resume their careers and thus the new website. Check it out and tell me what you think.
