Make me an offer I can't refuse!
My unemployment checks ended two months ago and now I'm starting to feel the pain of not enough money in the budget. I have been looking for employment during the past two years, but it is only recently that there seems to be positions which are a good fit for my experience. Recruiters are starting to contact me so the economy must be improving. I need to get back to work to have structure and purpose in my life. I need to have contact with the outside world. Being a housewife and stay at home mom is not always the best thing for self esteem. I sometimes feel isolated and alone even though I may have had coffee or lunch with a friend. It is hard to meet someone for the first time and tell them that you are not working. It doesn't matter if it is your decision to stay at home or a corporate decision it is looked down on by most. However, most of the people who look down on me are working mothers. Why is this? Is it jealousy or resentment? I am ready, willing and able, so bring on the opportunities.
