Recently I decided I needed to get out of the house more which led me to look for a job outside the home. now don’t get me wrong I love blocking but can be a lonely and sedentary job and I needed to get up and move more.
Sure I could have gone back to teaching but although I loved that job I still don’t think I could go back full time with all the demands that are placed on teachers today. plus add into Behavior the kids and well you know what I’m talking about.
But I still wanted something that would be part-time and require movement on my part period I am lucky enough that a job like that fell into my lap. I was on Facebook one day when Maddie’s and Mikaela’s old boss at Odom Farms posted she was looking for help with their CSA program (Community Supported Agriculture.). I jumped at the chance. and I was hired immediately period I now work on Tuesdays at their local pop-up Market as well as packing their CSA boxes.
It is definitely a lot of physical work but I’m enjoying it.But sometimes moms, when they were want to enter the workforce, don’t just have a job fall into their laps like I did. Often times they are faced with these five dilemmas
1) Going back to their previous job. I have a friend right now who has gone back after years of being away to her old job. Talk about an eye-opener
2) Going back to school to learn a new skill. One friend of mine went back and got her CNA degree so she could be in another job. She is now happily employed at our local hospital.
3) Work for a friend. I think I pretty much fall into that category.
4) Exploring a full or part-time job. I have a friend who works part-time mowing the grass and an apartment complex as well as holding a full-time job
5) Or even think about starting their own company. But I will caution you if this is what you’re planning starting your own company isn’t as easy as it looks and you might want to hire a business consultant like Trevor McClinotck that can help your company start out on the right foot.
So if you are a mom re-entering the workforce or just entering the workforce after staying home and having your babies, I hope that these suggestions help you. Congratulations on your new job.
