The first back to work mom I worked with was a former practicing lawyer who had been out of the workforce for almost 13 years. Again, one of the most important challenges is for a mom to appreciate her value. After she landed an interview with her new resume, we worked on that emotional aspect of her job search, then her attire, then interview prep. She landed the job! That was years ago. And she acted with much more confidence when it was time to move on to the next opportunity.
If you are a mom looking to go back to work, think about all the volunteering you do at school and elsewhere. Volunteer work should go on your resume. If you are a mom thinking about returning to the work force and you just want to talk about how to start your resume, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to talk you through the process.
