  • Are there any local stores nearby? How about any classroom aide positions, or cafeteria staff positions at teh school? You might also be able to find positions at a local child care or a fast food resturant.

  • Have you considered childcare, housekeeping, pet sitting, or senior care? Take a look at and There might be some jobs listed in your area. You can pick and choose. Also, look at some of the providers' postings so you know what they charge and get ideas how to list your qualifications. Good luck!!

  • have you tried a temp agency? As long as you can type, file, book keep you can get a job... Check your local and check for some job postings... You might also think about being a nanny... That would be good if you have the patience... Good luck and God Bless you and your family!

  • Remember, stay at home moms have lots of skills that employers value: time management, logistics, budgeting, etc. You probably also did some volunteer work, and picked up additional skills and experience (and professional references).

    There are lots of tips and references in the CafeMom Job Hunting Moms group:

  • Why not work from home? The benefits of starting your own home based business are great. You have tax write offs, you make your own schedule, get to be with your kids and hubby. Go to or contact me if you would like more info or ideas. This business offers you bonuses plus your compensation to help you get off to a great start.
