THE WISC SERIES IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY HULFT

It can be daunting to get back into the workforce after years without working. Lisa went back to work in supply chain after 12 years out of the workforce taking care of her three boys. Thanks to her dedicated self-learning and determination, she was able to get the position she wanted in less than a year of looking for a new start.

How? Imagine yourself as a case study, Lisa says. She regarded her situation as a template, analyzed the economy, did a lot of self-training and adopted an unstoppable mindset. She is proof that if you really want it you can make it happen. Your journey to success is not only about finding the right position but also the advancement of your career and negotiation is an important part of that so Lisa adopts a similar mindset when it comes to negotiation. Negotiation is about defining a problem and making sure both sides win. When it comes to negotiating, Lisa recommends looking at other opportunities rather than your salary, such as flexibility and in-company training.

In her free time, Lisa helps other women get back into the workforce through talks, workshops and blog posts. Her main advice? Make sure not to put the onus on other people for your work to be recognized. Acknowledge your value and make sure your company is aware of it. Her advice to students: negotiate as high as you can on your first job, it could make a difference of literally millions in the future.
