The thought and process for moms returning to work after being home raising children for several months or years can be scary, intimidating and stressful. (Why do you think I’ve tried to keep one foot in the career door since the birth of my babies… I’m petrified of losing ground in the working world!) CBS Los Angeles news anchor Suzie Suh knows what I’m talkin’ about…
With school back in session and the release of the brand new book Mom Boss: Balancing Entrepreneurship, Kids & Success (written by mom-with-major-moxie and founder of Momtrends, Nicole Feliciano… available now!), I got revved up to tackle how moms can jump-start the process of re-entering the workforce for my latest ‘FAB Mom on 2’ segment on CBS Los Angeles. Hint: Transferable Skills, mamas! TRANSFERABLE SKILLS:
FlexJobs: An online resource, with a monthly subscription fee, that screens and lists flexible jobs for parents. Companies do not pay to be listed on their site. Working Mother Magazine, Power to Fly (for tech jobs) and Work at Home Mom Revolution also provides valuable insight and email blasts with cutting edge information. General Assembly and Skillcrush can help you develop and/or hone a new skill relevant to working in the digital age for minimal investment of time and money.
