Key Difference: Jobs are often activities that are done in exchange for money. Some of these so-called jobs involve assembling crafts, stuffing envelopes, data entry, or even bill processing. The “employer” requires an upfront payment for instructions about the position, required software, or materials. Or the employer may require a “subscription fee” or initial start up fee be paid before they send any information to the Job Seeker. Once payment is made, the Job Seeker is told that the materials and information will be mailed or emailed to them within several business days.

Beyond the student population, this book would be a very useful resource book for: Parents, who in the Indian context, appear to have a major influence on their children’s choice of careers; Teachers, who during the academic life of the student, become the primary source of guidance, inspiration and information; and Career advisers and counsellors attached to different schools, colleges and career guidance bureaus.

Once you’re job-search ready – i.e., you are prepared to meet with other departments or locations, and you have an updated resume and performance review to share – then get in front of the manager for the role you are targeting.

Rather than dwell on how you’re not with your child, think about how your role in the company is benefitting the family. Perhaps you can afford certain classes or educational opportunities for your children or you’re able to put away savings for college. “The most successful career moms have found ways to be efficient in both worlds—and that requires being able to come to terms with choices and focus on the priorities that are in the moment,” says Lisa Pierson Weinberger, a lawyer and the founder of the law practice Mom, Esq. Accept that there will be good and bad days. Mothers should know they are not alone and they should discuss their feelings with partners or support groups. Local mom blogs, such as Working Moms Against Guilt , are a great way to reach out to others trying to find the same work-home balance.
