It is never too late for a Career

womenMy father used to say that it’s never too late to do anything you wanted to do. And he said, ‘You never know what you can accomplish until you try – Michael Jordan

Eventually the kids grow up, and women may find that they have the opportunity and drive to establish or re-establish their working careers.

These ladies often find potential employers failing to give them a chance as they have either never worked or have taken a 5 or 10 year break to take care of their families.

Some suspect these ladies’ commitment to re-establishing their working careers especially in light of recent graduates who are perceived to have a higher need for employment with more up to date knowledge through their recent education.

In some cases, employers do not provide the balanced and effective flexibility needed for a woman to get back into a working career while still managing a family.

This is unfortunate … but it is reality.

As I have said before in several posts, the formula is one of energy, knowledge and creativity to serve. You bring to the workplace an experience that has tested your patience, organization and problem solving skills that others don’t have, so

… never stop walking … take stock of what you know and what you do best … brainstorm ways you can serve others … and take action
