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.
What’s harder than being a mom? Probably being a working mom. Think about it – if being a mother is a full-time job and you’re holding down another full-time job on top of that, that’s TWO full-time jobs!
I’m a work-at-home-mom, so I know all about the struggles of the work-life balance. Thankfully, I’ve got plenty of busy mom friends, and we help each other through the daily grind. I’ve have access to websites like Mom Corps YOU.
Mom Corps, a national award-winning professional talent acquisition and career development firm, launched Mom Corps YOU to help busy moms 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.
Those resources include tons of useful articles and videos, as well as a private forum that lets you connect and chat with moms just like you. There’s even a live chat feature that lets you ask questions, which are answered by a real job recruiter!
For me, the coolest part about Mom Corps YOU is the selection of online presentations, which you can attend live or via playback when you get some rare free time. The sessions are presented by world-known speakers, authors, television personalities, and experts like Jean Chatzky (financial editor for the TODAY Show) and Good Morning America contributor Tory Johnson.
The one-hour sessions are offered two to three times per month and include time for Q&A. Here are just a few of the topics busy moms can tune in for:
“Five Truths of Flexible Work”
“The Flexibility of Freelancing”
“A Game Plan for Relaunching Your Career”
“Social Media Strategies for Your Next Career”
Because my resumé has collected a little dust over the past four years, I attended a session called “Resumés That Get Results,” and it was SO helpful. They not only covered how to write and format your resumé, but also how to customize it for the specific position you’re seeking and what hiring managers are looking for from today’s job seekers.
Long story short, if you’re a working mom or thinking about becoming a working mom, you should definitely give Mom Corps YOU a try. You can subscribe to Mom Corps YOU for an introductory annual rate of $99.99 (regularly $149.99), or $19.99 a month. Either option is WELL WORTH the investment!
