Going Through Changes

By Adam Lansdell   Is it time for a post-kiddo career change? For many parents, the schedule and career type they were tied to prior to having kids just won’t cut it. Many parents return from maternity leave and feel that their schedule, duties or even their entire industry simply don’t line up with the life they hope to lead as they raise their newborn. Before jumping ship, work with your employer to see how he or she can adjust the intricacies of your role to make spending time with your family easier or more flexible. Perhaps seeking out a role that allows you to work from home is more important than the actual work itself. Nonetheless, if you’re passionate about a different industry, go for it – children or otherwise. We all want to perform the role we feel we’re destined to.
