Instead, it means reigniting old contacts (even those who were once your junior), marketing yourself, and getting over the intimidation that plagues most women who have been out of the workforce, whether it's been two, six, or fifteen years. Carol Cohen and Vivian Rabin, who have successfully pulled it off themselves, know that it can be done--with careful planning, strategizing, and creativity. In BACK ON THE CAREER TRACK, they offer a seven-step program for going back to work. These steps are: -Relaunch or not? You decide -Learn confidence -Assess your career options -Update your professional and job search skills, and prepare for the interview -Network, market yourself, and clinch the opportunity -Channel family support -Handle the job (or find another one) Cohen and Rabin also offer advice on maintaining the balance between work and home, and navigating the inevitable sticky situations with family and friends that arise when you return to work. This is a comprehensive, inspiring guide that is sure to become the classic resource in this field.
