Hilary Berger, founder of Work Like a Mother, a service for stay-at-home mothers in career transition, is holding a seminar focused on helping stay-at-home mothers get back to work.
"Career Issues for Stay at Home Moms ... More than Meets the Eye," planned for 9:30 a.m. on Nov. 18 at The Career Co-op in Westport, aims to help mothers feel a new sense of purpose and clarity as a result of experiencing a groundbreaking career development model. Women will learn how to identify the best career options for themselves based on their own interests, personality and skills. Participants will begin to reclaim and redefine the "professional self" they left behind when they chose to stay at home with their children.
Standardized career inventories and interpretation (Meyers-Briggs, Strong Interest inventory, Values and Skills) are included and will help women understand how to identify the best career options for themselves based on their interests, personality style and skills.
The seminar is associated with the Career Co-op, a consortium of career management professionals and coaches at 272 Post Road East in Westport. This is a professional group of dedicated individuals committed to expert career management services. The Co-op specializes in corporate business development, resume writing, interview coaching, branding and all other relevant career management support services.
Berger, a board certified licensed professional counselor and career consultant, has her doctoral degree from Columbia University's Teachers College. She has developed a solution- oriented career counseling program designed exclusively for mothers in transition.
