I have a friend who spent the last 4 yrs as a stay-at-home dad caring for his special needs child. He’s ready to get back in the workforce and make a career change to IT. How does he get started?

Does he have a bachelors degree or any related work experience?

But also if he just spent time caring for a child with special needs I would hire him in a heartbeat for client service/tech PMO work. It proves he has patience, emotional IQ, is willing to put in the elbow grease—finish up those certs and maybe throw in a couple for ServiceNow and he’s got it made.

If anyone is thinking about going on flex time, I would highly recommend it. It might not work for everyone, but my experience has been a positive one. I took a 20% pay cut along with 20% reduced hours. I am able to support my family with that income and my firm respects my limited hours, but I still need to plan to make sure I can complete tasks in my reduced hours too. Anyways, if you like what you do, but don’t like the long hours and can take a pay cut, I would do it.
