Relocation. Motherhood. Yet, Back to Work with a Bang
Back to Work, Restarter Stories
04 Apr 2019
"My journey started in 2006. I got recruited as a Software Engineer in Satyam, through campus placement.
A five-year break in 2013 due to a relocation for my husband’s career, and then a daughter, put a temporary halt to my career as a Marketing Analyst. But my roles as an officer’s wife and a mother helped me build new perspectives.
In late 2017 an opportunity came knocking when we were moving to Chennai. I started mapping out a clear strategy to re-launch myself and make myself relevant. A 90-day plan helped me finish my certifications, spruce up my resume, and re-brand myself. And within four months of job hunting, I got my calling in the role I wanted – a Digital Marketing Analyst.
The corporate ecosystem currently is very conducive for women to restart their careers. If a re-starter is aware of the value she brings to an organization, nothing can stop her from getting the role she wants. Be gritty, be intentional".
