Article: Stay-at-Home Parent? How to Kill it on Your Comeback Resume
Since we often have so many moms looking for work, I thought that this article might be helpful. The resume is that all-important tool to getting the job you want, but being a stay-at-home parent often leaves gaps on your resume that are hard to fill. This article gives tips on how to update the resume so that you can still show your qualifications!
Despite this article, I wish times infinity that you could say, "I was being a parent," and that would garner the respect it deserves. Sigh, in a perfect world, I suppose.
I will say that listing volunteer work is a very good way to handle those gaps in employment. Or listing self employment, but don't lie for crying out loud. If you say you were a self employed writer but your resume has a ton of typos no one is calling you back. It's easier to be honest and highlight your experience.
