I am thinking of going back to work. I know what a decision to return to the corporate world when so many people I know have taken redundancy or just decided to give up.
There is no right decision but I do miss work and now my children are in college I do feel I would like a challenge.
Do not get me wrong it will take a lot of courage to return to a world where so many are half my age, technology has advanced so much and the pace and culture is so fast moving.But I do think with age comes wisdom, maturity and a sense of self belief.
Of course I do not have a wardrobe that is in anyway corporate so I will need to invest in some new clothes while taking care to stay within a limited budget.
Dresses are so popular for corporate wear and have the advantage of being one item you choose rather than a suit, trousers and top. Some of victoria beckhams dresses look great but obviously the price is not plus I do not wish to wear spanks every day.
So I welcome your thoughts and advice as I reinvent my CV contact the employment agencies and dust off my black suit. I realise that opportunities are rare so it may take some time.
Have a fun weekend
