How Caregivers Can Navigate Taking & Returning from Career Breaks
October 18, 2021
Hosted by Marie Zimenoff
The coronavirus pandemic has taken a disproportionate toll on caregivers, two-thirds of whom are women. More than 1.6 million women have left the workforce since February 2020 and the number of women who are considering downshifting their careers has grown from 25% to 33% over the past year. In this episode of Career Confidante Radio, host Marie Zimenoff welcomes Career Coach and Director of Talent for FlexProfessionals, Leanne Rodd. Together, they discuss what caregivers can do if they are on or are considering a career break. Based on her experience with FlexProfessionals, an organization that has spent more than a decade working with job seekers returning to paid work and scaling back, Leanne also shares tips for caregivers getting ready to relaunch their careers. If you are looking for targeted advice and job search tactics to return to work and find flexibility, listen in!
