Welcome New Readers!
After leaving my job many years ago to be a stay-at-home mom I realized that there was a shortage (or absence) of blogs that would help moms stay connected or reconnect to the working world , so I created one! I thought that moms could use a place to go for continuous professional development, even if a few of our bosses happen to wear diapers!
I’m a Human Resources Director with a training and technology background, who coincidentally is a mom that went back to work after many years of staying home full-time with my kiddos. I remember the struggle of deciding if I should go back to work or not, along with the unexpected fear and guilt that came with my decision. As I spruced up my resume I was forced to seek professional development on my own since my husband and I weren’t in a position to pay for expensive seminars or training, which could cost thousands of dollars. Luckily, I have always enjoyed professional development because of the mental awareness that it provides for me. It’s like exercise for your mind.
Along with sharing career advice, I share what recruiters are really looking for, and I share guidance for tapping into available resources for professional development that will assist you in your journey.
I think you’re going to like it here! We are a fun community of moms seeking to continually develop ourselves professionally!
Grab your favorite drink and lets get to work!
