I know more than a few moms (and some dads) who have put their little one on the school bus for kindergarten and are ready to get back into the world of work. Some of them were stay-at-home parents, others downsized their career for the duration, and others are just ready for a change.
If you fit into one of those categories and are a college grad, check out what your school has to offer. Many schools offer free or low-cost career counseling to alumni and most have free career services and job postings.
One of the reasons that colleges and universities have programming for alumni is that your school has a vested interest in helping you to succeed. Through your successful career, you reflect well on their program, and you may someday be in a position to help a fellow alum.
Here's information on college career services for alumni including how to connect with your career and alumni offices and how to take best take advantage of alumni programs, events and service.
