  Temporary, freelance or contractor work can often be good alternative options to a sometimes, confining permanent job.

For temporary and contractor work, register with recruitment agencies that offer such employment options. This can be an ideal way to ease yourself back into the workforce and build your confidence whilst exploring your job options and determining what you’d really like to do in the future.
