Kids Are Back to School…Now What Do I Do with Myself?

Stay-At-Home-MomTips for Stay-At-Home Moms Re-entering the Workforce

Your kids are in school all day and you are thinking the time is right to re-enter the workforce. You hesitate because you don’t have any current “job experience” to add to your resume.  Will anyone hire me?  Yes, and here is why!

Take some time to think about all you have accomplished in terms of managing a household and guiding your children through school and activities, as well as your volunteer work. These aspects of your life have given you experience and skills that employers do in fact value.

For example, you were the PTO President for your children’s school.  To an employer, this means you have led a team, managed multiple projects, exhibited fundraising and budget management skills. The trick is in how you highlight these skills.

Set up your resume so that it leads with a “career summary”. Start by selling the skills you can offer.  Showcase the skills you have gained as a stay-at-home mom that will attract employers.

Here are tips to help you get creative with filling that “experience” gap on your resume.

  • Having input in selecting insurance plans or college funds can be valuable finance & accounting skills.
  • Shopping for bargains, clipping coupons and making sure all purchasing was done timely and efficiently can equate to skills befitting a purchasing agent.
  • You are a self-starter and show initiative if you volunteered to coach a team or coordinated events for your school, church or parent group.
  • You pay attention to detail because you make sure everyone has all that they need for their activities and arrive on time.
  • Don’t forget about your time management skills and ability to multi-task!  How many days did you do laundry, run 3 kids to activities, cook dinner, clean up the playroom, walk the dog, and schedule appointments…all while organizing a fundraising event for the school and all in ONE day?

The bottom line is you have value and worth even though you have not received a paycheck for the work you have been doing all these years.  You just have to know how to sell yourself!

Protocall Staffing Launches – New Name, New Branding and New Website

| 1 Comment

Cherry Hill, NJ – Protocall Staffing is proud to announce its rebrand from Protocall Staffing to The Protocall Group with the launch of its new website.

Protocall Staffing, a well-known staffing services provider to the Delaware Valley since 1965, has launched its new website at www.protocallgroup.com.

The Protocall Group launched the new website to reach out to more companies looking for staffing and hiring solutions and to job seekers looking for employment.  The Protocall Group is comprised of 6 specialty companies which provide temporary staffing and direct hire, temp-to-hire and contract services and solutions in the entities of Office & Professional, Finance & Accounting, Technology/IT, Industrial, Healthcare and Homecare.

The desire to create a phenomenal online presence for The Protocall Group, led us to award the website development contract to Blackbird e-Solutions, LLC.

The new website has been designed to provide the ultimate user-friendly experience with improved navigation and quick and easy access to essential information to job seekers, employers, as well as employees of the company.  The new website also allows customers to access information with the option to share information across all major social networking sites.  “The social media properties will not simply be profiles and pages on various platforms, but extensions of their website where they can engage job seekers as well as employers and clients,” states Bryan Coe, owner of Blackbird e-Solutions, LLC.

The website boasts a modern, colorful design and is divided into three sections: Job Seekers, Employers and Employees. Each area then takes the user into a customized section and provides detailed information on the corporation as well as its 6 entities. The website’s user-friendly nature provides users with more efficient access to the organization’s resources.

“We are excited to launch this new site,” says Kim Dobrzynski, Director of Marketing for The Protocall Group. “Our company has a lot to offer to job seekers and employers. This new site will enable them to find job opportunities and learn why taking advantage of our services will be a great decision for them.”

New protocallgroup.com website

  • Staffing companies can help you get a foot in the door at a company
    • Working well in a temp position can often lead to full time employment
    • On the plus side, if a full-time position opens the company already knows you
  • Try before you commit
    • Try out the position and see if the job and the company where you are placed are a good fit for you
    • This works both for temporary employee as well as the company
  • In uncertain times many companies are afraid to higher full-time employees but will hire temporary workers
