My Favorite Job Searching Tools For Moms That Actually Work

Moms are busy.

Like reallll busy. So that means we need FASTER job searching tools that connects us to the type of opportunities we are actually interested in.

Indeed, Ziprecruiter, and LinkedIn are all your traditional job board platforms, but it’s time we got more specific to what moms need and “get us.”

The fight to keep and acquire fresh female talent from entry-level to C-suite level positions has been top of mind for many organizations. The organizations that “get it” continue to stabilize their female to male employees because of one thing; they offer support for moms.

Organizations are starting to catch wind that the key ingredient to consistently grow their female talent is to support women with a specific way that resonates with them-supportive parenting programs.

Now that we are starting to shift the mindsets in corporate america on the importance of having equal female representation at the board room table or in the trenches cranking out marketing solutions to acquire new clients, we have to start providing solutions to meet the needs of moms to feel fully supportive in their career.

Here are some of my favorite job searching tools that specifically are curated for the modern momma, who is on the job hunt for a new opportunity, but still has priorities to her children that she wants to ensure is being supported.

  1. The Mom Project

This job platform is a digital talent marketplace specifically for moms. The Mom Project has made it their mission to connect employers with moms who are ready to drive impact and ensure their family needs are never compromised. This digital platform allows an individual to create a profile, search for opportunities, and learn about organizations that are “mom-friendly.”

This platform hosts opportunities from startups to fortune 500 companies that are targeting women who are looking for unique opportunities that support the working momma.
