One of the biggest challenges facing divorced women and men is starting a new life after the divorce, and that often requires that each spouse get a job after divorce. If you are fearful that you are not qualified for the workforce because you’ve been a stay-at-home-parent for many years, you are not alone. Each year, millions of women and men each year must venture out into the workforce for what may be the first time in several years. Thankfully, there are numerous agencies and organizations available to provide career counseling in Denver to older adults re-entering the workforce or entering for the first time.
If you need to find a job after a divorce, you may be feeling inadequate, unprepared and insecure. These are all normal feelings when taking on something so new to you. Even if you will be collecting spousal and child support from your ex, you will have to work. It’s important to sit down with a career counselor before undertaking the daunting tasks of creating a resume, applying for jobs, preparing for interviews and waiting for that ever-important call back from an employer.
If you feel you can take on this endeavor without the assistance of a career counselor, then you can start the process by doing research online and speaking with others who have done what you’re doing. It’s important to have some type of support system while you begin the exciting process of finding a job.
