What I qual­ify in.

Are Do (if you ever you a won­der you stay-at-home wish how to) re-en­ter you mom? will the pro­fes­sional work life? Are you con­cerned about the gap that mom­my­hood got along in your re­sume? Do you won­der, “what will I write on my job ap­pli­ca­tion af­ter I have been a SAHM for seven years?” Some say it was a sab­bat­i­cal from work, while oth­ers write 'un­em­ployed'. But I hope this post gives ev­ery­one the courage and pride to say how we are more qual­i­fied for any job than we were be­fore be­com­ing a mother. Read on for the eight jobs I am el­i­gi­ble for since be­com­ing a mom.

Al­though I have been home with my kids for the past two years, the thought of leav­ing my job per­ma­nently has never been on my plans. Not that I don't en­joy spend­ing ev­ery mo­ment with my twins (rather I am grate­ful and feel blessed to have got this op­por­tu­nity), but there are still some pro­fes­sional as­pi­ra­tions I have that need to be ful­filled.

While think­ing through I won­dered what role I would take when I get back to work­force. Will I be the same charis­matic leader full of zeal tak­ing for­ward a team un­der me? Or per­haps I could try some­thing dif­fer­ent al­to­gether. Have I grown and learnt some­thing new in these two years which kind of "jus­tify" the gap, may be to my­self?

And that's when I re­alised what all skills I have learnt since be­com­ing a mom. And I feel so pos­i­tive think­ing about the newlearnt skills and jobs I am now el­i­gi­ble for.
