I was sahm for 5yrs. It was a transition for me though I manage to return to my old office. Boss has changed and much younger. I just try to do my job to show my own competency. After a yr, things are better.I am a sahm for coming 3yrs. Recently, I decided to return to workforce, but felt despised by the society, because of the 3yrs gap and will be in my 40s soon.
Does any mum face the same issue and have advice or can help?
Yes it’s true. But still possible if you get wind of word from ex colleagues if you can. Did you manage to get to work? Now may be a good time with all the hiring in place.I too found it difficult to get back to the workforce. Hiring managers, HR and recruiters are not keen when they know that I took 5 years off to take care of my kids. That’s the harsh reality.
