Career Coaching Questions Answered On Employment Gaps, Onramping, Career Change, Rekindling Old Networks, Figuring Out Next Steps and Job Boards

In this episode of the SixFigureStart Career Coaching Radio Show, I answered questions on Employment Gaps, Onramping, Career Change, Rekindling Old Networks, Figuring Out Next Steps and Job Boards:

Listen to internet radio with SixFigureStart on BlogTalkRadio

Evelyn asks: How does one get back into the workforce after being unemployed for almost 2 years?

Sherill asks: Hello Caroline, I look forward in networking with you and others as I prepare to enter back into the workforce after being a stay at home mom for 15 years. But those 15 years have not been without development. My husband and I bought, ran and successfully sold our business 6 years ago, and during that time I attended school and received by undergrad degree. I am now preparing to continue my education with a Masters…, and I do volunteer work teaching… However as most women who have been out of work for sometime I have concerns getting back out there and if I will be marketable. I listened to your most recent Blog talk, and the information you gave was very helpful. Thank you.  I don’t know the percentage of women who are in the same position I am in, getting ready to enter into their second, or third career ( I consider being a mother a life long career), but I think your advise on staying active either in volunteering, freelancing, etc. is meaningful and that we shouldn’t discount it as being lesser.

Sheryl asks: How do I go about transitioning to a career in a different field. I was an Executive in the financial services field for a number of years and left the company for personal reasons. I took a non-executive job and am now looking to move back to an executive position.

Regina asks: How do you reach out to “older or cold” contacts? Perhaps, contacts I haven’t spoken to in 5+ years. What’s the best approach to reach out and re-establish the connection?

Gabrielle asks: I have no idea what I want to pursue a career in. I need help figuring that out.

Sandy asks: My current most pressing career-related question is how to navigate the myriad job boards out there.  There are so many…I feel as if I am spinning my wheels sifting through them, uploading resumes, inputting keyword searches, etc.  Help!
