I am a college graduate but have been a stay at home parent for 13 years, my kids will all be in school next year and I want to go back to work! Since I lack job experience I returned to college to get a MS with the hope that a fresh degree would make up for a lack of experience. I am reading online that entry level means at least 3 years experience, which is a catch 22 if you can’t get a job because you don’t have a job. How do I get experience without having experience and how do I compensate for my age? Are there any companies out there that will give a sahm wanting to go back to work a chance? One suggestion I see is to gain experience by volunteering, but many volunteer positions also seem to ask for years of experience.
