I've considered going back to work but honestly I'm feeling anxious just thinking about the application process. There's the issue of what am I going to do? Before I left the workforce I was an ace at customer service. Since becoming a stay-at-home mother I've acquired my bachelor's degree run a franchise build website and become obsessed with digital and visual art but before I tried to find this dream job as a mythological artist content creating website building entry-level CEO unicorn position I have to update my resume. That alone is a nightmare. How do I disclose what I've been doing for the last 4-plus years at home with my children? I want to share all of the skills I have obtained without sounding too arrogant.
Where do I begin? Honestly my resume hasn't changed. I have my last employer on there and then I feel like there's a huge gap. Is this what online dating feels like to a freshly minted divorcee? I feel lost. I'm starting over or am I? It's time to take a look at all of these skills and build my current resume.
Locate a few sticky notes a parent or pencil and make time for a solid week of observation.
Make note of all of your responsibilities and tasks. Meal planning, running errands, and the household is essentially project management. Getting your babies to eat their veggies (without a huge blowup) make sure the great negotiator. Settling sibling squabbles looks like a job in mediating. Handling meltdowns is Crisis management. Scheduling appointments and days makes you a prime candidate for a job in efficiency and time management. Caring for sick child and your husband sure does look like client relations to me. It was a newborn every 3 to 4 hours means you can work well under stress. By keeping your family on a budget, you've taking on the task of cost control.
After you make a note of all of your responsibilities pick the right resume. You'll want to create a resume that highlights your skills along sharing your previous employment.
List all of your dominance strengths first. Label this as "executive summary". Bin list everything else. Title these as "core skills". Then list everything you've ever done paid volunteering for entrepreneurial in chronological order. Title this as work history. If you want to list stay-at-home mother on your resume, I suggest switching it with the term "mom on call" and include all duties and most importantly be honest!
The only thing left to do? Kill your cover letter and find the right employer.
