Career break most of you listen about this. This is what most of the women go through this. In India, as well as across the world, millions of women take extended breaks from work for various reasons. One of the reason is pregnancy.
According to a study by the World Bank in collaboration with the National Sample Survey Organisation, 20 million Indian women quit jobs between 2004-12. Around 65-70% of women who quit never return to work at all.
Today I tell you a story about woman name shikha sarwant who took a break from her job due to health issues in pregnancy. She take almost 3 year break after baby delivery. Now she wants to join back her job. The question will she get the job in this corporate world where technology changing in a very now and then?
She lost her confidence. Her husband is very supportive who motivate her and tell her at-least give a try and definitely you get a job. Now she started searching jobs. Most of the companies are not hiring sabbatical people.
She found it almost impossible to convince companies I applied to that the ‘gap’ in my career did not necessarily mean a decline in my skills. They want currently working employees.
After efforts of 6 month she got a call for an interview from a big farm.She was very nervous about the interview and convince part. Now her turn come for interview. The interview asked about gap moment .he started the interview. she explain that. She able to answer technical questions asked.
Everything goes well and she bit nervous about cracking interview. A girl came said u may leave we will tell later on. She enter HR room asked about her result. she said u have a gap and we are hiring currently working employee but you are very good give a try definitely get a job. She leaves from there.
She was very whole day. She started upgrading new skills online and working as a freelancer. She gain a confidence and again got a call from company.
Now she more confident women. They asked what are you doing now a days. She said I am working as a freelancer and also learn python. She got selected with good hike.
So Career break is not a fault I can say this.
Knowledge is more important.
Upgrading new skills with time and apply to that is more important.
Try Try Try for better person and better Knowledge is what i can say to the women who want to do something and make her identity.
Nothing can stop her to chase the world even the small break.
