Review

“Creative Ways to Combine Work & Family … Sharon Reed Abboud, author of All Moms Work: Short-Term Career Strategies for Long-Range Success, writes about what US News calls "the new mommy track," or the trend towards mothers finding creative ways of combining work and family after their children are born. Abboud says telecommuting, freelancing, and owning your own business are all ways to make it possible.”

It's possible to have a flawless resume, a great work history and a great attitude, but still blow the job interview. Subconscious, nonverbal gestures might be sending the wrong signals to a prospective employer. All Moms Work: Short-Term Career Strategies for Long-Range Success (Capital Books, $15.95) by Sharon Reed Abboud offers eight suggestions on how to project positive body language.”

“10 Ways to Make the Most of an Informational Interview…6. When job seekers go on informational interviews, they should request referrals from the interviewer for additional people who may be willing to meet with them. Then, they should meet with those people and request additional referrals. It is not a waste of time. Even if they do not receive a job tip, the job seeker's network will expand outwards like a web," reveals Sharon Reed Abboud, a career strategist and author of All Moms Work: Short-Term Career Strategies for Long-Range Success.”

“Sharon Reed Abboud of Ashburn is the author of the new book, "All Moms Work, Short-Term Career Strategies for Long-Range Success," which was published by Loudoun-based Capital Books in April 2009. …In this e-mail interview, Abboud discusses her career decisions and why she decided to write a book about back-to-work options for moms.”

You can also take courses online or at your local community college. Sharon Reed Abboud, author of "All Moms Work: Short-Term Career Strategies for Long-Range Success," points out the importance of being tech savvy. ‘Be sure to get up to date with technology (including Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel) and any certifications or re-certifications that are required for your industry.

Format: Paperback
ALL MOMS WORK does just what it's subtitle suggests: It offers short-term career strategies for long-rang success! And that's what any career-minded mother needs who decides to make raising her children her first priority. The book suggests ways to keep your resume fresh, earn money through part-time jobs, and/or study for a new career while being a parent. What I really liked was its nonjudgmental attitude and its realistic career strategies because, let's face it, most mothers will return to work when necessity or timing is right. Sharon Reed Abboud is obviously a mother who is a skilled career strategist and a knowledgeable friend.

While this book is primarily targeted to transitioning mothers, it has a comprehensive set of approaches to re-entering the workforce depending on your personal situation and needs.

There is something for everyone here, and I have donated my copy to the lending library of our church's "Career Connect" ministry that supports people in career transition.
