Unemployed

I have been finding it extremely difficult finding employment after 10 years of being a stay at home mom. I either don't have enough experience or, my applications are being skipped because lack of recent work history. I can't even get hired to stock shelves. This is so frustrating.

A lot has changed in the employment community over the last 10 years Molly. Job seekers today need online application skills to successfully get their resume information in front of human eyes. You need to be able to clearly and convincingly articulate your skills and career in order to have a small chance at landing even an entry level job. Do you have a resume? Don't go it alone. Take a step back and get professional career help to improve you chances. The Career One Stop website has a directory of local career services, job fairs, and other support organization. I suggest you call today and make an appointment for a one on one consult. https://www.careeronestop.org/resourcesfor/careeradvisor/career-advisor.aspx

Maybe you can try to do some temp jobs and gain some good experience. Also, you can use all your stay at home mom experience to your benefit too. Keep pushing forward and I know you'll find something!

Been there. The best advice I can give is go through a temp agency. I was a military spouse so I had gaps in my work history you could drive a tank through especially after our daughter was born. A Temp agency can market you and get you the interviews. The computer algorithms recruiters use these days cut a lot of good workers out of the interview pool because we are honest and don't pack our resumes with buzz words.
