Why Job Searching After Mat Leave is Like Dating

Because it totally is. 

If you don’t want to just take my word for it, I get it. 

I’ve teamed up with Oh Baby Magazine and I’ll be offering advice on your job search, interviewing skills, resumé writing and so on. WTH, I know. What I didn’t tell you is that before I went on mat leave and decided not to return to the same position, I worked as a Recruiter. I was pretty good at it too, if I may say so myself. 

My first post for Oh Baby offers some advice on the first stage of your job search. And you don’t have to be a mom. Or even a woman to read it.

Tired. Going from 10 months of staying at home with the kids to full time work is disorienting.  I have to redefine what my involvement in their lives looks like. I have to go dig for my creativity, it's not readily available. I have to make room for friendships that were already pushed to the outskirts of my mommy life. What was previously inaccessible, existing in the "so near yet so far" category - books, blazers and heels - became a staple in this old new reality in a matter of days. Tired and disoriented but also content, supported and appreciative. #momsofinstagram #random #randomthoughts #changes #workingmom #tired #tgif
