Elizabeth Andrew – What Glass Ceiling?

Concerned about returning to work after a career gap?

In the US, many women drop out of the workforce – either voluntarily or involuntarily – for a period of time to care for young children or aging parents. And during the pandemic, this number has only increased with the demands of at-home schooling.

If you’re deciding to reenter the workforce after a period of time, the prospect can feel daunting. You may be anxious about starting a new job or you may worry that your skills have become rusty since being away from the workforce.

However, understanding what your transferable skills are (and a healthy dose of confidence) can go a long way in landing a job you love again.

Take it from Elizabeth Andrew, a top-producing technology sales executive, who has established herself as a leader, motivator, and role model with her inspiring story of career reentry by breaking barriers into the San Francisco technology workplace – at 50 years old, after a 17 year career break.

Elizabeth shares her top 3 tips for how to get started on your career reentry in today’s podcast episode – be sure you listen in for some major career reinvention inspiration!
