Getting back into your career after moving back Stateside?
One of my fears/concerns about moving is getting back into my career field once I move back stateside.
I never saw my move to VI as a permanent one for now.
I wanted to hear what others did about having a gap in similar employment.
For me it would be years of IT, move down and most likely get a bar/restaurant gig, then move back and try to re-enter IT.
Why not look for IT opportunities in the VI?
If tending bar is the dream - then set up a small IT-type consulting business on the side that will give you something to talk about on your resume if/when you return to the states. You know, self-starter kind of stuff.
Otherwise, after a couple of years in the VI, your IT experience will become outdated.
Employers now really only look at your most recent 5 years of job history.
