My advice to you is to focus on what you have to offer. Ask yourself, 1)Do I really want this job 2)what skills can I bring to this job 3) which ones do I not have and how do I respond to these lack of skills. I just secured a good job after struggling to get back in after six years. I was prepared and enthusiastic - I answered all the questions I thought they would bring up like gaps in employment and lack of industry experience. I prepared a brag book of everyhing I was proud I had accomplished. You have to believe in what you have to offer and not feel bad for leaving the workforce. It took me 6 years to figure that out and be prould of who I was and my skills. I sold myself. I was told I had the best presentation skills of anybody they had seen!!!! It was totally empowering.
