Description

This book is for moms who decided to stay at home to care for their children but who are now ready to -- or need to -- go back to work. In "All Moms Work," career-expert and mom Sharon Reed Abboud offers sound, sane short-term strategies to supplement the family income -- working from home, finding a good part-time job, or tackling a full time job to meet economic and/or career goals. Her book helps you plan wisely and devise short-term strategies that will lead to long-term career goals. And, yes, it offers you ways to continue your career and still be a hands-on, primarily-at-home mom. "All Moms Work" helps women concerned about raising their children and making ends meet the practical advice they need to keep skills, contacts, and resumes fresh; to earn serious money while working primarily from home; and to transition back to professional part-time or full-time employment when they're ready. This is a career guide that will help you re-enter the work force or stay home now and work full-time again in the future. Vital topics covered in "All Moms Work" include: * Reinventing yourself and deciding if it's time to change careers* What is your brand?* Plum jobs for career changers in sales, healthcare, and education* Do you need a website?* How to handle initial re-entry job interviews, and much moreAll Moms Work is a must read for every woman who has ever worked or ever intends to work. It will no doubt become a bible for women who are grappling with the dilemma of how to strike a balance between work life and parent life. Each chapter breaks down the choices that career women have to make, and provides essential information to inform and educate the reader about all their options. As a career coach and consultant, I will be putting this book on all my clients' reading lists. --Cheryl Stein, Canada's Monster.com Personal Coach"Abboud takes a sledgehammer to the myth that women must make an either/or decision about working. The reality is that part-time work is a meaningful option for millions of women who want to step back, but not completely away, from the full-time job market. All Moms Work is a valuable resource for any woman looking to combine work and family."--Kathleen J. Wu, Andrews Kurth Attorneys, LLP"Smart, practical, inspiring--and respectful of all mothers' choices This is a book for mothers to read for themselves and to lovingly share and discuss with other mothers who are working out their dreams for work and family over the short and long term."--Hannah Riley Bowles, Associate Professor, Harvard Kennedy School"Sharon Reed Abboud's book is an extraordinarily rich resource for today's mothers (and fathers). This easy-to-read, insight-filled, and downright useful book is a must read 'fave' for moms linking them in to career savvy advice, imaginative options, and terrific tips."--Nanette Levinson, Associate Professor, School of International Service, American University*
