What is your job/ career besides being a mom?

Just curious.......what do you mommies do when you're not taking care of your kids? Did you go to school for the job/ career you have? Do you love it? I'm wanting to go back to school but I don't know what I want to go for. I want to see what the majority of you other mommies do!

  • The majority of mothers are not on CafeMom; there seem to be very few professionals here.
    Go to your local library and pick up a copy of What Color is My Parachute. It will help you find a career path. Be sure to explore job opportunities in your area before committing to a college major. It is always a good idea to have a couple of informational interviews with people in your chosen field.
    My career has meandered over the years. Currently, I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization; I also do career & job search coaching. I am always happy to help cafemoms (and dads) with resumes, cover letters, job search strategy & interview prep

  • Choosing a career is all an individual preference of what interest you; you can’t compare to anything one else’s likes and dislikes.
