As a relatively new SAHM (Stay-at-Home Mom), I read Michelle’s post at Leaving Excess How Does SAHM Look On Your Resume? with great interest.
Michelle recently returned to the workforce after about a decade of being at home with her children. She listed the skills she developed as a SAHM on her resume. Some folks told her she shouldn’t include that information, but in the end, it helped her find a job that respected her role as a mother.
I’ve overheard more than a few moms answer the “what do you do?” question with a soft-spoke “I’m just a stay-at-home mom.”
But as Michelle points out, we’re SO MUCH MORE than that. We’re negotiators and personal finance wizards. We organize and educate. We lead and comfort.
Thanks for reminding us SAHMs of all we do!
