Louise's experience with Career Comeback Program
Surprise would have been my reaction if you had told my younger self that one day I would be part of a career comeback program. That's because I never meant to interrupt my career. Originally, I simply planned on reassessing what I wanted career-wise by taking a short break. Then, as so often happens, life intervened and my intended six month sabbatical turned into something significantly longer.
I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent with my family and am thankful I was able to be there to help during some fairly trying moments. Still, I missed working and being around my peers and all that that represented. However, although I was committed to returning to the workforce full-time, the workforce wasn't committed to having me back.
