Welcome to Comeback Girl

Are You Returning to the Workplace After a Career Break?

Does the endless conversation that you have with friends centre around “what do I do now the kids aren’t small any more?”

And yet are you worried how your family will cope with your return to work?

Do you feel invisible or obsolete?

Do you feel that your industry had passed you by?

Do you feel a HUGE lack of confidence wondering if you still have something unique to offer.

This was my story.


But now… I’m now in a unique position where I am an in-house recruiter,

and I understand how enriched your job can be by having time out.

Take the stress out of your first job interview especially if  it has been a while.

Our “Are You Interview Confident” Quiz will show just how ready you are.

Believe that there is a job for you
and you can relaunch your career to be even better than it was before.


If you are worried how to explain your years of leave or if you feel utterly daunted by the prospect of where to begin or if you wonder how to even begin rewriting your cv, all the more reason to begin your Comeback journey. Start right now, today with one of our resources. I am here to help.

Find Resources From Our Blog

My name is Laura Izard and I wanted to create a resource for women who need someone to see them, tell them they are still good (in fact better!) and that they can go on to achieve amazing things after a career break.

I’ve been exactly where you are at this moment.

On Comeback Girl, I want to share my experience from both sides of the recruitment process because I am acutely aware of what it feels like to come back to your career after a break.

Your blog and podcasts meet me in exactly what I am experiencing.

Accountant : relocated from UK to Melbourne, Deloitte

I loooooove what you do Laura your blog and podcast can really help others to regain their confidence after a career break. Keep it going and yes, totally agree with you about reframing FEAR as a motivator. Fear can be a powerful friend if you know how to manage it!
