Best advice for someone looking to re-enter the workforce after a hiatus?
You can do this! Include in your resume any continuing education, skills gained, or volunteer activities you engaged in during your time away. If you took a professional hiatus to raise children, for instance, explain your organizational expertise or how you functioned as the family CEO, COO, and CFO. Then network to find people who value those experiences.
