Needing to take a break from your career happens. It could be to raise children, go back to school, care for a sick family member, or personal growth. Returning to the workforce after a long break can seem daunting, but with different strategies and the right career, the process can be done easier than expected. Nursing and teaching careers are always in demand and may just require you to renew a certification and brush up on new education. A law degree is also a good option if you plan to take an extended time off from work. Freelancing positions in your field can also help ease you back in, and contract work such as driving for Uber can also be a possibility.
