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
