Dear Ma'am,\n\nI have worked with a Public Sector Bank for five years in Trade-Finance Operations as Assistant Manager(from 2009 to 2014) but for some personal reason, I had to resign from the job. But now as things are settled, I want to get back to work. I tried applying through job-portal but it seems recruiters are not considering my resume due to long career gap i.e. of 2.5 yrs.\n\nCurrently, I am pursuing PGDBM-Finance from Welingkar Institute of Management- Mumbai and also completed a certification course in related experience but seems recruiters are not considering the same.Please suggest me what skills I need to acquire and apart from that in what way I can approach for job application so that I can at least be called for an interview. Also, please suggest me if there any other sectors as well where I can look upon and the courses and certifications I need to complete.\n\nLooking forward to hearing from you.\n\nRegards,\n\nSuman Preet Kaur

Hi Suman. It seems you have hit the proverbial glass wall most returning professionals encounter,which is a pity given your experience but a reality in the job space.It is always a good idea to stay connected during a break to boost the chances of employability .It is always a good idea to look at the current roles in demand in your sector.Financial analysis is one such area which is set to grow exponentially .A course in Applied Finance would have been useful too,especially to open the doors to Corporate Finance sector.Look to find a fitment with your previous experience too.Would you be open to going in for a CFA program ?.It does require a lot of effort and investment in terms of time, but is useful if you are looking to enter asset management, equity research, or hedge funds.Post the program,networking through the local CFA society will help especially attending the events.If this is something you are not open for ,an alternate career option can be explored - maybe a sales position in the finance sector ?Also look at openings in the start up ecosystem - they are more flexible and open to returning professionals and being from the finance sector will help.There is also more scope to move between roles here.Let me know your thoughts on this or if you need more help.Best,Monica
