I am also planning to re-enter the workforce after 16 years. I would love to brainstorm with you. Maybe we could be motivation partners? Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Maybe you could luck out and maybe just what yor school needs? It's what happened to me! For five years I chaired all the fundraisers and when my youngest started school, the Principal asked what I was going to do now and offered me the part time job I have now!

The best part was, he teased me that I was in an informal job interview for three years! HA!

Lots of luck though!!

Here are some links that may help you:

Volunteer Work on Your Resume? Absolutely! | (scroll to bottom)

Helping Volunteers to Market Their Experience on Their Resumes

Does Volunteer Work Really Count On My Resume? 7 Tips for Moms Returning To Work | YourOnRamp

That last will align well with your situation. One of the tips I like (and I think it's one of these is to use the heading "Professional Experience" rather than "Work Experience" so it's a better fit for both paid and unpaid activities.

Good luck, Bertha! Let us know what kinds of responses you get and the questions you get asked in interviews.

Hey Rocky, watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat.
