7 (more) #workthatworks Tips – find a job you love

As part of our #workthatworks campaign we’ve asked experts to share their top tips and advice on achieving a career you love and that fits into your life.

As well as practical advice on getting back into the workplace there is also some good tips on achieving work/life balance. Here are the ones we shared in the second week.

"Work out what you want – becoming clear is vital. Imagine your dream job. Now think of the hours that fit in with home life and then show that company how amazing you could be.”

--- Juliet Turnbull Founder & CEO, 2to3days.com

“As a work-at-home mum - especially in the digital world – try to be 100% in the moment. That’s whether you’re working or with the family. Take time to work and time to be with the kids but whichever one you are doing, be 100% focussed."

--- Helen Wills, Actually Mummy blogger

“We all need support. Asking for help doesn’t mean you’re helpless.”

--- Katerina Gould, Co-Founder and Director Women Returners

“Your children are an achievement. Never apologise for them.”

--- Lisa Unwin, Co-founder She’s Back

“Mum gaps on your CV? Here are some skills you’ve gained from being a parent. Organisation, patience, conflict resolution, team playing, multi-tasking, listening skills, time management, problem solving, networking, event planning and communicating. And that’s just the beginning!”

--- Suzannah Butcher, Founder of Work for Mums

"Success is about designing a life where you get to make up the rules. That means working where, when and how you want. It’s about defining success on your own terms.”

--- Janet Murray, writer and PR trainer

"It’s Ok to think about your career in a different way when you’ve had children. Your priorities may have changed – give yourself permission to be comfortable with that.”

--- Sarah Archer, Co-founder of Career Tree
