" The cost of center-based child care — as opposed to family child care — jumped by 44 percent." - Politico
The high cost of child care and lack of paid leave are serious issues for working parents. How do we encourage employers to offer more child care benefits?
It's best to love your job than to hate your job because you will make the most of it because you enjoy/love your job you're going to do whatever it may be to the best of your ability and feel good about doing it while you do it. Valerie Black
I'm currently in school studying to be a medical office assistant. I'm going for a certification which I will get in about 8 or 9 months. Being an office assistant has been my dream job for many years. I love helping people. I worked as a daycare provider back in the early 90's as a summer job. Volunteered at a mental facility during my high school years. In 2012--2013 I cleaned houses temporarily and haven't worked in over 10 years. I am definitely looking for work until I can become certified as a medical office assistant, as I'm in a domestic abusive relationship situation and in the process of getting out of the situation. I need income for my children and myself. #advice #housing #motivation #education #backtoworkmoms #housekeeper #healthcare
I work in retail and have been told for almost 10 years that I could not get full time because of my availability. I am a single mom with no family or friends to help raise my child. So I have been passed by and looked over, but I stayed because positions are flexible. Well now a girl has been with the same company just over 2 years, got a lead position and is allowed to bring her child to work!!!!! I am so angry. I don't know what to do. Try calling corporate and they just refer me back to my store coach who by the way already knows about the child being there. What should I do?!?!
#my résumé only tells you about the career I used to have. #advice I would love to be a greeter at a hair salon or something in that field or a manager etc. I cannot cut hair anymore due to my hands. What careers do you have out there that you do not need your hands? #general #noexperience other than cutting and coloring hair. I’ve worked n this field for over 35 years. #backtoworkmoms #motivation #networking #inspiration #courage #wordsofadvice #jobsearch
I am now looking forward to getting back to work after a 5 year hiatus, while raising two teenaged girls. My work here is through, and I look forward to getting back into the community, as I truly am a 'people person'!

I did have a job but do to the boss being racist and making very rude remarks about my pregnancy and him looking down on people like myself that are less fortunate but worked for everything i own I was done I quit. Now I am seriously having a hard time trying to find a job to help my husband :-( any suggestions or advice I do have 2 kids and need to go around there schedules
I was out of the work force raising 4 kids for 16 years. My husband is an engineer and worked offshore or over
seas so we decided it would be best and more economical for me to stay home. During this time I completed a bachelor's and master's degree and am in the process of studying to take the National Counseling Exam so I can become a licensed therapist. I am a substitute teacher right now, but I would really like to find a job closer to my chosen field and a little better pay. Since I chose family over career my choices are slim because of not having any experience.
Any suggestions on how to improve my chances of maybe at least getting a foot in the door?
