Lara Roser took a 10-year hiatus from the workforce, leaving behind a successful career in payments, to stay home with her four children. Rewarding as that was, she found herself ready to get back to the kind of work she loved most by the time all four children were off to school. But Roser had reservations: would prospective employers only see the gap on her resume or would they value a job well done before the leave? Visa’s first-ever Ready to Return program ignited the confidence she needed to apply for the jobs she was qualified for and never apologize for the gap. Visa’s Ready to Return event provides training, resources and encouragement for those who have left the workforce for family-related leave. Here is Lara’s story.
