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 wouldn’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.

“People thought I was crazy to leave a salary and paid vacations to stay home with my child,” explains Monica, “But I had a plan, which is vital before you go storming into your boss’ office to announce your departure. There’s more to quitting than saying the words. There’s strategy involved.” 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.
