I Am a Stay-at-Home Mom or Dad!

According to Salary.com, the average stay-at-home mom or dad should be earning $134,121.00 per year for performing ten common daily functions. That’s the cost you would pay someone else to perform all of those duties. Stay-at-home moms and dads perform these vital functions every day on a voluntary basis.

You have provided time to your family during the critical years, the years they’ve needed you most. You have acquired several skills and abilities, some of which you may not be aware. The time has now come to enter the workforce for the very first time or get back into the workforce after a lengthy absence. You are nervous and unsure about whether or not you can find a job. This is where we can help you!

Salary.com lists ten occupations that are filled by stay-at-home parents. These are but a few.


  • Housekeeper
  • Day Care Center Teacher
  • Cook
  • Computer Operator
  • Laundry Machine Operator
  • Janitor
  • Facilities Manager
  • Van Driver
  • CEO
  • Psychologist


Now, we are not advocating using worn out “home management” phrases that are not appealing to potential employers on your resume. However, we do feel your experiences are valuable and lend themselves to specific jobs available in the workforce. We work carefully to match your career desires against your education, skills, and abilities.

The key to obtaining gainful employment is to translate your education, skills, and abilities into those things attractive to potential employers. We will focus mainly on hard skills and volunteer commitments that employer’s value.

As we prepare a stay-at-home mom or dad resume, we will be looking for the following artifacts: 


  1. Education and working history.                                                                                                            
  2. Skills inventory, of which we will help you prepare (i.e., budgeting, planning, organizing).                
  3. Volunteer positions and commitments.                                                                                               
  4. Goals you have set for yourself.



Make an investment in your future!
