Hello, I am planning to go back to work after long career break. First I can only go back part time as child has a medical condition and so cannot commit to a full time position ...Booo.. Anyway ... The dreaded CV. I have been in investment banking and a manager for over 10y and now I am going back to work to be a receptionist/administrator. I can see that the transferable skills are there but it is annoying to have to re-write all of my CV. I do not want to go back in banking anymore, I am too old, not so career driven anymore as priorities have changed (see child)... ideally I would like to work in admin position in a school. But guess what they told at one interview? you were not selected for the position as you did not give examples more related to a school environment!!!! what??? I never worked for a school how can I make it more orientated.... not happy.
