If you're a mom who took some time off to be with the kiddies, and now wants to reenter the workforce (or just want a new career), consider signing up for this workshop: Moms in Career Transition. I haven't taken it, but have heard great things about it. It's run by Jewish Vocational Services (but you don't need to be Jewish) at the JFCS Parents Place in San Mateo. Here's what the JVS website says about the program:
A six-week career exploration group for moms who are looking to re-establish satisfying careers. Whether you’ve been out of the workforce while raising children or have continued to work but are looking for a career change, this group is for you! Led by a seasoned career coach (and mom!), this group will share ideas and feedback, contacts and strategies to help each member define and reach her career goals. It’s just the push you need to get started!
