There's been a stigma around career breaks for too long, despite the reasons to pursue one, such as starting a family, focusing on health and wellbeing, and pursuing passions.
However, career breaks are really important parts of your career journey and what makes you unique. Still, it can be intimidating to publicly share your career break story while trying to return to the workforce.
Tackle the job search with transparency and honesty. You can now add a career beak to the Experience section of your LinkedIn Profile, with the option to show the type of break you took like caregiving, career transition, health and well-being, and more.
Share your new experiences and skills gained. Ensure to look for ways to connect them to roles you're interested in so that you stand out to recruiters.
Proactively bring up your career break during the interview. Focus on how your time away has developed you, the valuable skills you've learned, or how you discovered a new passion.
Connect the dots between what you did during your career break and what you can bring to a particular role as a result. For example, you helped your child with homeschooling and realised you had a passion for teaching or community volunteering.
62% of people have taken a career break at some point. So, don't be afraid to reach out to your professional community for help and advice.
In your LinkedIn Profile, turn on the Open-to Work feature. It will increase your likelihood of getting a recruiter message. Ask for advice with a post on LinkedIn. Sharing your story can also inspire others to do the same and bring attention to this topic.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
