Job Search Tips for Parents and Caregivers Returning to the



While the COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped the workforce in many ways since early 2020, data shows that parents and caregivers have been disproportionately impacted, especially moms. One in five working-age adults in the U.S. stopped working to step up as teachers and playmates to minimize the impact the pandemic has on future generations.*

If you’ve taken time away from the workforce to care for family, you may be wondering how to describe the skills you’ve gained during this time on your resume and in interviews. It takes unwavering confidence, creativity, and compassion to navigate your family through COVID-19, and they are the same strengths you will harness in the workforce.

By evaluating the skills a potential employer is seeking and comparing them to your tasks as a caregiver, you can show the company that your time away was a season of development and productivity.

Tune in for this virtual workshop to learn how to lean into your caregiving with pride and present yourself as the leader that you are in order to continue your career.

Key Takeaways:
– How to translate skills from caregiving to another position
– Example caregiver role language to fill your resume gap
– Storytelling tips to speak confidently in interviews about the time you’ve spent leading your family
