I'm seriously thinking about moving back to my hometown. My question is about the job climate and demographics. I find myself in a weird spot as I will be entering the job market after being gone, stayed home with the kids, but I have a recent Bachelor degree. What is the general attitude here towards someone in my position? (I was hoping it might be more sympathetic because of the cultural slant.)

My husband works with tons of women in your situation. They are now empty nesters, or their kids are in school, and they finished their bachelors degrees, and got hired. I can't speak for all companies, but his company doesn't care at all.

I think - depending on the industry you have your degree in - it will make a difference.

There are too many employers who will see you as "entry level" material.

I see too many women back in the workforce here after a break with degrees end up in the secretarial pool here - unable to break the glass ceiling.
