Returning to Work

Jobless at Home and Needs a Career Change

I've worked since I was 16 and I stopped working at 29, as I had just burned the candle on both ends. I took some time out to try a career change as a cultural performer and now I am at home and jobless. On my job applications it looks like I didn't do anything for 3 years! The interviewers I am honest with don't even call me back. I'm starting to feel a physical depression and unqualified for anything. I need a start in the right direction, but I don't know where to start.

Returning to the Workforce Challenge

I am a 45 year old CPA. I have been at home raising my kids for 13 years. I spent 8 years prior to that working for one of the big four public accounting firms, as a manager. I need help figuring out how to get back into the work force. I have sent out many resumes but with no success.
