BACK TO WORK by Susan Foreman
Many women today face the daunting prospect of returning to the workplace and their careers after taking time off, often to start or raise a family, or due to a period of redundancy. This informative, practical and highly readable guide offers advice for all women who wish to return to work following a career break. "Back to Work" clearly covers important issues such as restoring self-confidence and identity, explores motivation and practicalities (what you want to do, where and how, training courses and taking the plunge), and examines childcare options available. It also looks at strategies for creating an optimal work-life balance, and how to deal with issues such as sexism and ageism. Finally, this invaluable guide concludes with a comprehensive directory of useful organisations, associations, agencies and resources.
