Hope you’re enjoying the early start of summer! Across the country, things are heating up.
That’s true for the job market too. While the summer is typically a slower time for hiring, companies are assessing the gaps they have in staffing as a result of the pandemic. We’re seeing more movement in the market than in years past.
And this is also true for women in the EvolveMe community -- several women we’re working with have received multiple job offers, many have recently accepted coveted roles at high profile companies and even more are actively interviewing.
With Forbes spotlight series on the inaugural “50 Over 50” list last week and the success we’re hearing on the ground, there’s change in the air.
At the same time, we know there are still over 1 million women looking to return to work. When we were feeling stuck, reading books that showed us a next chapter was possible helped us get our career mojo back!
At EvolveMe, we know there’s no set user manual for midlife career reinvention (that’s why we’re here!).
But there are a few trusty guides we love that can inspire you to get going!
Here are the books that head up our all time great list. Enjoy them at the beach, poolside, before bed or in the early hours of the morning when you have some alone time...or check out audio versions to take with you on your morning walk!
