Anyone leave the industry for a few years to stay at home and then come back ? I’m curious about your experience. Would you do it again, if you had to do it over?

My husband did and said it was a big mistake. Now, he’s a creative so I think it’s tougher, and he was out for 8 years. But re-entry has been impossible so far, and he was at some top shops and won rewards.

I took almost a year off from freelancing after birthing twins. I wouldn’t recommend more than that.... It was really tough coming back and trying to secure legit work. I ended up accepting a job in the PR sector which afforded some nice flexibility... works well for me, but it’s not very glamorous.

I’d also consider job market. With all the layoffs… could either be a great time (lots of people with career breaks) or extra hard (depending on how long it takes for jobs to come back, if they do, and how long you want to be out).

This is so frustrating. 3rd Nov is my LWD and today is 4th day my HR gets a reminder mail auto generated (with me in cc) to conduct my exit interview so that I can proceed with clearance. And this nonsense fellow is not bothered to speak a word or do something.

He is delaying it on purpose I guess and wants me to trouble or suffer in some way.
