Top 3 Time Management Tips for Working Moms Searching for a Job

May 27, 2024

As a working mom, finding a job can be an overwhelming and sometimes deflating task, especially with the many responsibilities that come with managing a household and taking care of your children. The job search process can quickly drive your stress level through the roof, with the added stress of managing your time effectively. With the right strategies, however, you can stay organized and productive while looking for a job. In this blog post, I will share three tips for managing your time while searching for a job as a working mom.

Prioritize and Plan

  1. The first step in managing your time effectively is to prioritize your job search activities and create a plan that fits around your existing commitments. Start by identifying the most critical job search activities, such as updating your resume (I can help), searching for job postings (I can help), and submitting applications (you got this). Then, create a schedule that works around your work and family commitments. By prioritizing and planning, you can stay organized and focused, and avoid feeling overwhelmed.

Utilize Flexibility

  1. As a working mom, you might not have the luxury of dedicating hours to your job search every day. You can, however, take advantage of the flexibility that comes with job searching. Consider looking for job postings during your lunch break or after your children have gone to bed. Utilize remote work or freelance opportunities if they work better for your schedule. You can also explore the possibility of part-time or flexible work arrangements that may fit better with your current lifestyle. I’ve tried a couple so let me know if you’d like my candid thoughts.

Network and Seek Support

  1. Networking is sometimes a scary word, but it can be invaluable when looking for a job. Reach out to your professional network, friends, and family to see if they know of any job openings or can provide job search advice. You can also join online job search communities or attend networking events in your industry to meet potential employers and colleagues. Might I recommend LinkedIn as an online networking platform I’ve used to find hundreds of candidates as a corporate recruiter? No LinkedIn profile set up, yet? Let’s chat

Additionally, seek support from your partner, family, or friends. Consider delegating some household responsibilities to them, such as grocery shopping or childcare, to create more time for your job search. 

Managing your time effectively is critical when searching for a job as a working mom. By prioritizing and planning, utilizing flexibility, and seeking support from your network and family, you can find the time to search for your dream job. Remember that the job search process can be challenging, but by implementing these strategies, you can make it more manageable and achieve your career goals.
