Returning to the work force – Guidance Please
I’ve been a stay at home mom for the past 10 years and it’s time for me to return to the work force again. I have some obstacles I need some guidance with though so I’d appreciate all the help I can get.
Prior to being a SAHM, I worked as an administrative assistant for which I had attended two years of college. I have 10 years experience but having been out of it for so long, I have no references left since many of them have either retired or moved on to where I can’t find them. I have done my best to stay current on as much computer software and I can but might still need refreshers for some minor things.
So where do I even start? Is there an agency or something in Edmonton that works with people like me? Do I just start sending out resumes and hope for the best? I can’t afford to pay for upgrading classes or courses right now either.
Any help or direction is greatly appreciated!
