No-one is under any illusions that finding a new job in the current pandemic is hard. Depending on what sector you are in, you may need to consider other possibilities where your skills may be relevant and might need to rewrite your cv. You might want to volunteer to get experience if at all possible and do your research. It’s vital that you think things through carefully.

This can be useful for those who have not had to search for a job for some time and may be worried about how things have changed with the advent of social media and the like.
The advice is based on the best expert tips published by our sister site workingmums.co.uk over the last 12 years and includes how to present any career gaps you may have, how to negotiate flexible working before, at or after interview and how to build your confidence if it has taken a dent as a result of a career break.
