  • Did you take a few years off after having kids before returning to work? Did you find it difficult to find a job?

    Answered on 30th January 2008:

    I took off three solid months before returning back to work part time from home or at places that would allow me to bring my kids to work. So, really, I took off 3 years and did contract work for non-profits and small businesses. I made sure to keep up on my skills (marketing, web design, and fund development for non-profits) so taht when I did go back full time this past September it wasn't hard to find a job in my field. Continuing to do SOME work throughout my "off" time helped tremendously.

  • Would you say that your job is mom-friendly? What do you do?

    Answered on 28th January 2008:

    Yes, my immediate boss is the CEO and a mom herself, so she understands and allows for flexibility for appointments and leaving early on some days. I work for a non-profit Community Health Center in fundraising and administration roles.

  • Ha ha. Yes, I clean, but - oh so sad - you're in CA and I'm all the way over here in FL. Sorry! :)
