Getting a degree after a baby...

How hard is it to get a job after you take a couple of years off from your career to get another degree and take care of a baby??

Re: Getting a degree after a baby...

I would guess a lot of that has to do with the field. And I could be wrong but I think if it is just a few years that is easier than say if it were 10 years. Good luck with finishing a degree and going back. I'm pretty blessed I was able to work part-time to finish my degree and most of the time my work is flexible so I just work 2-3 days a week, at a decent paying job for my area.

Getting a degree is a great way to build your professional network (not to mention your skills), so I think it would be a way to open doors for new job opportunities.

I didn't find it challenging. I was really scared and emotional at first because I never went ti high school and I really questioned whether i could handle it. I must have gotten lucky because most of my instructors rarely even assign homework. Its been mostly lecture and tests other than man and speech class.

It wasn't for me, but I'm a freelance writer.
