7 #workthatworks Tips – how to 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 first week – check back every week for more!

“Don’t undervalue your skills just because you’ve had time out – things haven’t changed as much as you think.”

--- Lyndsey Miles, Freelance Parents

“Force yourself to network both in person and digitally. You'll enjoy it more than you think!”

--- Amy Walker, Media Parents

“If you’ve had a career break, write a functional CV listing your skills and achievements rather than a chronological one.”

--- Mandy Garner, Working Mums

"Your career is a journey and the hours available to you will open up as the children grow. Be flexible with yourself.”

--- Louise Webster, Beyond the School Run

“Book some time in your day, every day for YOU, even if it’s just 30 minutes and do something you love.”

--- Hannah Martin, Talented Ladies Club

“Think about blogging, what started as a hobby on maternity leave for me has become a full time job that works on my time and terms and makes me happy.”

---Vicki Psarias, blogger at Honest Mum

"Find some time to get outside and move! Walk, run, bike, yoga - find your thing and do it often. Fresh air and endorphins in your day mean head space, good ideas and easier decisions. It will give you a teeny bit of ‘me' time in the craziness of working mama life."

--- Mel Bound, Founder, This Mum Runs

Digital Mums "Learning has given me an incredible network and lifelong friends"

"Learning has given me an incredible network and lifelong friends"

“It’s not what you know, it’s who you know” – or so the saying goes. I think the reality is that both are important, but since I graduated from Digital Mums just over a year ago, I have really learnt the value of having a good network.
