1. My advice: Even if you’ve been a SAHM for years and years, don’t sell yourself short. You have skills. Skills you’ve gained after years of mothering. Those years sitting in a chair cuddling and reading with my children have paid of in a children’s librarian job that I LOVE. Think of the book The Help: “You is kind, You is smart, You is important.” You matter, and you will matter to someone who wants to employ you.

    • This so, so true! It took me a bit to be able to toot my own horn and sell my skill set. It turns out that my years as a stay at home mom paid off well. I had experience in event planning with volunteering with MOPS and church events, I had valuable social media and business skills from working on my blog. I even picked up learning PhotoShop while I was on bed rest!

  2. Great resource! Since I transitioned from the “traditional” workforce into owning my own business – one of the areas I’m always on the lookout for is professional development. I’ll check this out!

  3. Getting in touch with a career development company can significantly boost your chances of getting the job you want.

    Over the past 10 years, I’ve helped so many people to realise their dreams and steer their careers in the right direction. If you’re at a cross-roads or don’t know where to start, contacting a career development consultant for advice is worth every penny.
