Taking the plunge

If you have decided to go back to work after a break, it will not have been an easy decision to make. It’s difficult entering the world of work after any length of time, but if you are coming back into it after bringing up children, an extended illness or another such reason you will find it especially tough.

That being said however, there are many things which can help you prepare yourself mentally. When it comes to interviews, remember that many people return to work after a long period of time and many employers will give you a chance. Here at Office Angels, we can help you prepare your CV and prepare for interview. We will take the stress out of job hunting and help to find a suitable position for you.

Once you are successful at interview, your first day back will fast approach. Many people make the mistake of thinking that operating in the work environment is something that you never forget. However, this isn’t always true. It will take time to get back into the swing of things and you need to relax and avoid putting unnecessary stress on yourself. 

Company practices, employee conditions, computer programmes and much more will have changed, but you will soon get a grasp of all that is new. You will also have changed and you need to make sure that you ask for help when you need it. Remember that there is nothing to be fearful of and you will succeed at anything if you put your mind to it.
