Here is my situation I have been out of work for nearly 12 years (currently on Social Security Disability Benefits). My previous job title was Senior System Analyst for a major company (I got disabled while working there). I feel that I am ready to return to work but I am afraid that even if I get into the ticket to work program I may not be able to get back in my previous field. I spoke with a representative that issues these tickets and they told me that it should be ok as long as I upgrade my certification/skills.
So as of today I have upgraded my certifications so I am current with new technologies but 12 years is a long time and I do not want to be retrain in a different field since this is what I am really good at.
My questions are, would I be employable after I have upgraded my certifications? How do I justify the huge gab of unemployment on my Resume? Any word of advice would be super, thank you and God bless.
