Re-entering the workforce can be a scary proposition, especially for those that have been out of the game for years—but it doesn't have to be, and there are plenty of resources available to you to ensure that your comeback is a successful one.
Whether you've decided to leap back into the fray by taking on full-time work, or if you'd rather move into part-time work, it's important to keep in mind that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Employers are still looking for individuals with a good work ethic. The old-school values of pride in work and enthusiasm have not lost their value. If anything, they're in greater demand now.
Apart from minor technological advances, the only thing that has and continues to change and grow is the way people are finding work these days. Professional recruiters are an excellent resource for catching up to speed and getting back in the game.
