A program to promote employment and recurrent learning was conducted for women that had left work because of marriage, childbirth, childcare, or elderly care, as well as for young women lacking experience in full-time employment. The program was designed to help women pursue professional careers in childcare, elderly care or nursing by utilizing the skills that they had acquired through parenting, elderly care, or housework. Participants in the program were women (N=22; Mean age 35.82 old±6.92). Women's Self-Efficacy Scale for Reemployment and Career Change was used to evaluate the program (Gender Equality Promotion Society of Yokohama, 2015). Results indicated that the program was effective in enhancing the self-efficacy of women seeking employment (F(1,11)=12.44 p<.01). It is suggested that research should be conducted in the future to support women seeking reemployment, or career change. This is considered necessary for maintaining the increased self-efficacy achieved through this program, as well as for helping women find, or continue in employment.
