I've been a sahm for a while and I feel that they are just gonna toss my resume as soon as they see the last time I worked. I have volunteered at a hospital. It's like employers think people "just forget" their skills and that's not true. We just moved to a new city which is a VERY small town. There are no community colleges here where I can update my skills and I don't trust online schools. I'm a medical assistant. I hate the field and I wish I could do something a little more or a career that was more than being the office gopher.
P.S. My husband doesn't have to think about our child when he goes off to work. Of course if I go to work it's "all my" responsibility from getting her to school to getting her home. I'm burnt out from trying to get a better career and be a mom at the same time with everything working on a perfect schedule. There is nobody to get my child off the bus but me and no afterschool programs here and nobody to watch my kid during holidays or sick days or summer vacation. My husband has a good job but I feel like I need to bring home the bacon. Before we were married, I worked and worked and now society makes me feel like crap because I'm a sahm.
The best solution would be to start my own business but I can't do that with the skills I have. I mean I'm not an accountant that can suddenly work from home. Anyone work from home and how did you do it ? How do people convince hiring staff that you're not brain dead from being a sahm ?
