My husbands hours have been cut right back and he's lost the motivation to find either a second job or a completely different job. I thought about looking for 1 myself but he keeps saying that I'm too fat and slow to get 1.
My question is, how difficult is it for a SAHM to get back into the workforce with no tertiary education and being out of the workforce for 7 years? What work should I be looking for?
shrugs every community is different and depends what you are looking for. I will say this much though, moms that do intensive volunteering may use volunteer jobs as references and job positions. They generally have a better shot getting a job.
Well the job market is tough for those with work experience, so it may not be easy. It wouldn't hurt to apply for retail, fast food, etc though. Unless you have a degree in something, apply for your experienced field. Try it.
I volunteered in a Head Start classroom for 2 years before I started working for them. I just graduated with my associates degree in May. I'll be there 3 years September.
The volunteer experience I had was a huge part in me getting the job. I was a stay at home mom for 5 years before that and only had retail experience before I had my first.
