Here’s what I know for sure. You deserve better. Women deserve better. This one size fits all culture and the pressure to make these all-or-nothing choices is antiquated and unfair.
Do you want to work full-time? You can. Good for you.
Have you always dreamed of being a full-time stay-at-home mom? Awesome, congratulations!
Do you want some of both? Want to work part-time? From home? Want to stay at home now and go back to work later? Are you a leaning-in Sheryl Samberg type? Wonderful.
You get my point, right? My goal is for you to feel validated and supported no matter what choice you make. In fact, we have a small team of people who spend much of their working hours, trying to understand what exactly we can do for you to make you know that MomSource is a Network that is hear to support you, encourage you, connect you and validate you.
If you’re one of those people who appreciate our mission and concept but haven’t had the time to visit your account recently, you MUST do that this weekend!
Here’s what you’ll find that we are doing differently in an effort to do more for you:
- You can now search all available positions! You’ll notice two new categories too—MomSource “Sponsored” and “Basic.” You can easy apply to any MomSource Sponsored position which means we have a team member working directly with the employer to find the right candidate.
- This new “Basic” feature now allows us to curate the biggest, baddest list of remote and flexible opportunities across the country. These are not MomSource sponsored positions but rather a vetted, curated list that you can review and apply directly to the employer if you’re interested. We expect to add HUNDREDS of positions before the end of the year!
And I hope you haven’t forgotten that we have an awesome MomSource Perks program that gives you discounts to thousands of retailers, entertainment, travel and more.
Here’s my confession: Building something like this is terrifying. We’re trying to make changes, create new positions and engage you with learning, content and more. Women must support other women and I want your help to create a world where all women know that they can be a parent AND a professional—not simply one or the other.
We’re going to be calling you up in the coming weeks and asking you questions. What can we do to be worth your time, your investment and your referrals? We are only able to do this for all of us if each of us does our part.
Check out the updates. I’m humbling awaiting your feedback.
