1) You have to be resourceful.
Gone are the days where I could settle in to a job search with my laptop, cup of coffee and some good tunes to keep me motivated. Now that I have a little guy on the move, I have to quarantine my laptop away from his grabby hands, and forget about a hot cup of coffee. These days, my job search is done by the light of the baby monitor, as I scroll through job postings on my phone while nursing my son to sleep. Only after bedtime does the laptop emerge to draft cover letters and submit applications. Luckily for us moms, time management and resourcefulness are desirable qualities to an employer.
2) Work/life balance takes on a whole new meaning.
