Get your career (re)started with Mom Corps YOU

Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Mom Corps YOU. I received a free trial to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. The views and opinions expressed here are my own.

My youngest will enter middle school in just two years! How time flies. Once that happens, my kids won't need me as much as they used to, so it will soon be time to start reevaluating my personal and career goals. Right now I work at home part-time, but I would love to ramp up my work hours -- but it has been over 10 years since I stopped working full time!  What's more, I've discovered that my passion no longer lies in software product marketing.  What I really enjoy doing now is connecting brands to people and working with families. At this point I feel unequipped -- in both skills and confidence -- to rejoin the work force!

Mom Corps YOU

That's where a resource like Mom Corps YOU comes in.  Moms Corps YOU is a subscription-based community launched by Mom Corps, the national award-winning professional talent acquisition and career development firm.  I was given a free trial subscription to Mom Corps YOU, after just a couple of weeks of looking around the site, I've already found so many useful resources to help me prepare for my next stage in life!

Here's how Mom Corps YOU can help you launch (or re-launch) your career, ramp up or down, keep you motivated, or find work-life satisfaction:

Education
Mom Corps YOU holds webinars on Tuesdays and Thursdays, covering topics such as resume building, what to do during your gap years, social media strategies for your next career, and work-life balance.  They also feature conversations with working women from all industries.  You can watch the webinars live or watch recordings later (you'll need to install the Silverlight plugin).

Resources
Mom Corps YOU has gathered resources from industry leading publications and news with lots of tips and advice. They also have a recommended reading list on topics ranging from Careers to Finance, Health & Wellness and Entrepreneurship.  Community members can also weigh in with their experiences and advice in the discussion forums.  I'm loving the discussion forum topics -- many are directly relevant to my stage of life, such as "Going back to work after raising the kids", "Shy to go back to work", and "Working Mom".  You can even chat live with a Mom Corps Recruiter who will answer your career-related questions!

Tools
Mom Corps YOU has compiled an arsenal of tools to help you advance your career:  templates for resumes,  post-interview thank-you letters and business plans, sample interview questions, business ideas checklist, training videos, and more. Since I'm currently updating my resume, I'm finding articles like "Resumes that Get Results" especially useful, along with the Sample Interview Questions to prepare me for the interviews I know I have to face.  I'm also loving the LinkedIn guide that goes through the basics of LinkedIn and how to utilize it to help your career.



 Mom Corps YOU is available via an online subscription for an introductory annual price of $99.99 (regularly $149.99) or $19.99 a month. Check it out at www.MomCorpsYOU.com -- it's a great resource for women, whether you're seeking personal or professional development!
