Want to return to work in a STEM career?

Returning to work after a career break can feel like a big challenge. If you've been out of the workplace for several years, as well as juggling your career and family you may be concerned about whether your skills and knowledge have become rusty.

If you're looking to return to a STEM (Science, Techology, Engineering and Maths) career, this may feel like a big barrier.

The Reboot Your STEM Career toolkit from the Open University can help. And what's more, it's FREE!

It's mainly aimed at women returners, but the material it covers is equally applicable to men. The topics it addresses include:

  • Professional Skills
  • Life Balance
  • World of Work
  • Networking
  • Job Search
  • Presenting Yourself.

Most importantly, it helps you draw up an action plan to find a job that matches your skills and interests.

If you've been thinking about returning to a STEM career and have been focusing on all the reasons why it will be difficult and it won't work, then now is the time to take action.

This is one of many free courses offered by the Open University. Take a look at the amazing range of choices they offer.

A couple of other resources:

  • This article demonstrates the benefits of blogging as a way of advancing your STEM career.
  • In this series of podcasts women entrepreneurs in SET (Science, Engineering and Technology) discuss a wide range of challenges they've faced and offer advice about careers in these sectors.

And if you are looking for 121 coaching or mentoring support, then please get in touch.
