I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Mom Corps YOU. I received a free trial to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
In the fall of 2007, shortly before Sebby was born, I left the corporate world. That means it’s been 6 1/2 years since I’ve had a “desk job”. Eventually, I’m going to have to think about going back to the daily 9-5 grind and the commute. I’m going to have to think about work-life balance – and how to manage my career, family and home life.
Returning to the workforce for mothers isn’t easy – whether you’re going back right after maternity leave, or like me, where it’s likely to be close to a decade before re-entering the corporate ladder. That makes me crazy nervous – I’ll be competing with college grads that are significantly younger than me, with more recent training to boot! So despite my experience, it’s tough competition!
Mom Corps, a national award-winning professional talent acquisition and career development firm, has launched Mom Corps YOU, an online community to help professionals better integrate their professional and personal lives. Mom Corps believes that work-life satisfaction is best achieved when you can take ownership of several key areas of your life, including career, finances and health & wellness, and this subscription-based community provides education, resources and tools to help you do just that.
The truth is, even though my return is several years away, I should start planning now. Luckily, Mom Corps YOU has lots of resources for me, including bi-weekly webinars, live chat-coaching, discussion boards where I can talk to experts and moms like me and so much more. It’s really an amazing resource that’s going to be really helpful!
Mom Corps YOU is available via an online subscription for an introductory annual price of $99.99 (regularly $149.99) or $19.99 a month.
