I graduated from college in '03 with a BA in communications. But because of my location I was unable to really use the degree at it's full potential. I worked as a CSR for directv for about 7 months, missed the face to face communication and grabbed the next job available, which was retail. I worked there for 3 years, then had a baby last year. I've been a sahm for a little over a year. I dont want to work again till my son is at least school-age, but I really dont want to work in retail again. since this is close to 10 years ago, is my degree basically "expired? whats your story? how long were you a sahm before getting a job again? was it hard finding one? especially to fit with your LO's and SO's schedule?Answer Question

Your degree will never lose its value. Getting back into the work force has more to do with whether you have kept your skills up, kept up with contacts, things like that. I think your work in retail will be great along with your CSR experience and your communications degree. My background is accounting. I quit working when I had my twins, but picked up a couple bookkeeping clients very PT a couple years later. Since, then I decided that I'd rather have my own work at home business with Gold Canyon and I use all my previous skills with that. I personally chose this route as it allows me the flexibility to work my own hours make money based on my efforts. I'm not sure that I'll ever choose to go back into a traditional job.
