    A report shared by Jennifer Preston on March 17, 2014 on continuing education, explains that now women are resuming their left over education. She shared a story of women who planned to resume her career life when her youngest child got enrolled in her last year of college. The women were herself an MBA from Harvard and had a good experience of private equity firm and she joined Wall Street as a comeback player.

     

    She had a talk with one of her son’s mother who was a senior executive in a one of the fortune 500 companies and found out that there are firms that helping professional women in returning to work by offering programs that suits their needs. She applied for one of such programs and got selected among a great number of candidates after a period of internship she got a full time job as a manager in one of their sister concern.

     

    There are lots of firms that are now offering re-entry programs for women who want to resume their career and professional life again because it is really difficult to find a job and to get started with work thing again after a long break. These firms are playing a good role in navigating women to their work life in a proper manner. While organizations are putting forth adaptable calendars, reinforcement kid consideration and different housing, the requesting work plans for individuals in the budgetary administrations industry and huge law offices are overwhelming for even the most dedicated workers.

     

    From one of the research it was found out that around 30% women left their work in between 2004 and 2009 due to their family reasons and are now planning to have a comeback and in order to facilitate them, organization are arranging campaigns and internship programs so that they can get used to the practical life again and manage to work properly. Things must have changed for them in these years and it is very much important to adapt that change and to get use it, educational institutes and firms are playing their part in making women get friendly with this change through multiple programs, training and advisory sessions.


    This is not just this one woman there are lot that are enthusiastic and career oriented and now planning to resume their education and their career life and as a support there are universities and colleges that are now offering programs that help them get a vocational degree relevant to their field. These degrees are work and life experience based degrees that help them justify their skills and abilities. Not only this, there are business schools that are providing assistance and help in resume writing and interview questioning to those who had a career break due to their family or other responsibilities. They are helping them to have a comeback in the game as a stronger player.

     

    Since its said that women are more sharper and have better critical thinking skills than a men, this re-entry programs are predicted to generate a talented and smart work force for companies in near future.
