      How to Build Your Resume and Score a Job

      Found anything you like yet? If yes, brilliant! The next thing you need to do is get working on your resume and preparing for interviews. You've been slogging for a while, in the most taxing yet rewarding job ever – mommying! You can multi-task, handle problems impromptu and can deal with multiple projects at a time. The following tips will help you nail your come-back resume so that you can get back on that career track:
      • Don't Hide The Gap

        Many applicants try and mask the unemployed days in their resume. This is highly off-putting to employers and can easily be found out. Instead, focus on some of your past jobs or volunteering positions and highlight your strengths through those.
      • Emphasise Your Strengths

        Mommying must have taught you a thing or two about time management and schedules. Do include these as skills, because why not?
      • Stick To Chronology

        Do put your best achievements right on top because those are things you are proud of accomplishing and will most likely be the things you are best at.
      • Stay Relevant

        While accomplishments are great, make sure you add in only the job experience or skills that are relevant to the job you are seeking.
      • Network

        Follow mommy bloggers online and strike up conversations. Who knows, you could find a long-due story within you that you'd like to write and maybe even take to writing blogs regularly. Ask around what other moms do in their free time; networking both virtually and in person is the best way to find a job you'd like.

      Best wishes from us for your mom-ventures! Remember that you are capable and can score any job you'd like. Do write to us for any help needed - we at World Of Moms are always there for you!
