How do I do work experience when I have been raising my children?

by Anonymous

Should I put down my education even if I didn't graduate? And how do single moms who haven't worked put that into a resume?

I am writing my resume in chronological order but I don't have work experience... I am a single mom and I don't know how to write this on my resume. I also only have six credits left for my certificate.

ANSWER: You're asking questions that have been answered elsewhere in the site many times.

For the incomplete education question, check this page, and for the lack of experience issue, check out this page on employment gaps for caregiving. I think you'll find comments/answers there that are helpful to your situation.

Best, Kathi
