If your homemaker activities are related to your job target, it makes sense to draw attention to your parenting activities and accomplishments.
For example, if you are looking for a job in teaching/day care or working for an organization serving children, you could emphasize the relevant experience of child care and incidental teaching as a stay-at-home parent.
Examples of job titles parents have used include: household manager, manager Jones family and family CEO.
For most people, though, it’s best to avoid including parenting as an actual job on the resume.
"We personally feel that there is no need to dress up time at home with silly titles like ‘domestic engineer,’" says Sollmann.
"The important thing is to identify how you have continued to use your business skills in the time you have been out of the workforce.
And if you truly have had nothing but child care and household responsibilities, it would be a good idea to get involved in some volunteer activities that require business skillsmanaging committees, writing newsletters, handling budgets, etc." According to Linda Matias, president of Career Strides, the right resume format is critical to getting noticed.
Although the Census Bureau doesn’t track the number returning to work, hundreds of thousands of parents decide to venture back to the workplace every year.
Census Bureau indicate five million women and 176,000 men are stay-at-home parents.
