I hired thousands of people during my career in Human Resources in New York City over 20+ years.
Some positions were considered “plum” jobs with a high salary, good benefits, and a clear career track. Others were temporary, dead-end, hourly positions that barely paid enough to make the commute worthwhile.
There’s one position I never tried to recruit: mothers. The job description would fill a book. With long hours and no pay, applicants would be few, despite the fact that no experience is necessary. But rather than try to describe the position, I invite you to check out the video below for a fun perspective.
Then, if you’re able, call your mother, wish her a happy Mother’s Day, and tell her “thank you” for working the world’s toughest job!
And if you are a mom, please know your efforts are noticed and appreciated!
