Tactics for Stay at Home Moms and Dads – How to get a job within 3 months.  What you need to know to successfully re-enter the workforce. 

“6 Successful Tips” that Domestic Engineers (stay at home moms/dads) need to know!

Raising a family is probably the hardest job a man or woman will ever do. We at dear jane help our moms and dads, and give them tips below.

  1. Answering the million dollar question – Why am I going back to work? – Our  clients are going back to work more out of “need” than want during this recession. At dear jane we help men and women get past their fear, shame or resentments of having to work outside the home and help them shift the subliminal messaging that may come across to perspective employers.
  2. Re-entry – You can do it! – Most men and women who are re-entering the workforce automatically assume that they will have to start out in an entry level position because they have stayed home with their children. It’s not necessarily accurate based on their work history. This is a mindset. We help them shift their mindset and visualize themselves in first place in the job search marathon.
  3. Build a Resume – You do have transferable skills – They need to hire a professional to help them build a resume that identifies their transferable skills.  Most moms and dads think that being out of the workforce only hinders them. The dear jane resume writing process helps them with their confidence and shows how they bring value to the company.
  4. It takes WORK – Conduct your research – No one said it was going to be easy. It’s imperative that job seekers spend at least 5-6 hours per day on their job search. Finding a job is a full time job. The harder you work the luckier you are. Research the industry you want to go into and find out how you could be a fit to them.
  5. Prepare for the Interview – Find a new vernacular – Mommy and Daddy speak won’t help you. Knowing how to answer interview questions will land you your next job. Practice, practice, practice.
  6. Follow up – When and how to do it – Work with a professional career coach to learn tips on how to follow up after the interview and to be politely persistent. Also stay at home moms and dads need key words to help them close the deal and to get their dream job.


What is Mommy and Daddy Speak? It’s all the communication among women and men who stay at home and raise their children. What that consists of just like in every field and industry, is their jargon and terminology relating to child behavior, parenting issues, marital relationships, and every aspect of raising a family and working at home.


Just like techies, engineers, financial analysts, or nurses, every individual has their own industry and corporate jargon or terminology. Stay at home moms and dads do too.

Moms and Dads have topics for discussion and problems and issues just like any professional person would in any company. Theirs is unique to their family.
