I am looking for a job, but I have been out of work for six years, not because I wanted to stay home, we couldn't afford childcare. This is the first year all three kids are in school all day. I have been looking since the beginning of the school year. How do I explain why I have been out of work with out saying we didn't have childcare? Or at least make it sound better. Also what else can I do to get hired after being out of work for so long? I will not lie on my applications, or resume, but I feel like this is holding me back. Any advice is helpful.

I would take some of the time off you had and explain it by saying you were raising children that is a wealth of life skills and also try to use any volunteer work you did. I was unemployed for almost six years I was writing and building a business it helped me a little bit but not much. So you can be truthful and point out all of the positive.
