  • Tell me if this is absolutely crazy. I have been a stay-at-home mom for 10 years, however, in the last four years I have obtained a bachelors degree in accounting and business. My resume is not working for me due to the economy, but more due to my 10 year gap. I would like to list my responsibilities as a stay-at-home mom as ome of my most "recent jobs" as well as adding my last four years (2005-2008)for my education as part of that chronilogical timeline. Is this crazy? I am so frusturated. I am even willing to take a customer service position to help in getting into a company to work my way into the accounting department preparing financials, but I am not even getting calls for these applied customer service positions.

  • In Jan. 2005, I decided to move to teaching in the public school system after 14 years of being a manager working for some Fortune 500 companies. My reason to move to teaching was mostly due to having more time spent with my children and it was an opportunity to give back to the community. However, over the past year, I have been trying to get back to the private sector without much success. I have an MBA (2002) and BS in Engineering (manufacturing management most of my career). I would like to use my management skills and experience to transition to the service sector but its not working. Any ideas?

  • I am one of those moms certainly, my baby girl is already one year old, I think I should look for jobs right away, it's really high time for me!

  • I'm not sure exactly why but this website is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end? I'll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
