3 back-to-school tips for parents re-entering the workforce

At CareerBuilder, we’ve been celebrating back-to-school season and helping parents find jobs that suit their schedules. Our own Sara Skirboll recently shared her best tips for parents seeking to rejoin the workforce this fall with “Inside Edition.” You can watch her exclusive advice here or read on to get her insights.

Start with your schedule

When thinking about a new job, keep your new schedule top of mind. Consider a role in customer service where you can work from the comfort of your own home. Check out open positions at TTEC, the premiere customer experience company, and apply for one of more than 1,600 remote roles they have available right now.

Makeover your resume

Let technology help you refresh your resume! CoLab by CareerBuilder is an online resource that offers resume templates, samples, and even a free resume building tool to make updating your resume simple and seamless.

Mind the gap

And when it comes time for your interview, confidently and proactively address career gaps. If you took a break to raise little ones, communicate that and showcase the experience and transferable skills you gained during your time away from the office.
