Whew!  It’s been a whirlwind week chez McLaughlin.

In the past seven days, through some connections we have with an awesome organization for stay-at-home-dads called the NYC Dads Group, my husband and I found ourselves on something of a media tour.  We’re part of a trend in America toward stay-at-home dads and primary-breadwinner moms.

Fast forward to today, and you can catch one or both of us on international TV courtesy of China’s CCTV network, on CBS news and, as of today, on the Katie Couric show!  It’s been super-fun and a very interesting ride.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I’ve been busy answering a really important question from one of our viewers, namely what to do if you’re on a job hunt, and your job history has “issues.”

Watch below as I tell our friend D. how to handle a big gap in her job history that makes her, like many of us, a non-traditional job candidate in her field.


Warning: this video ends with some of my signature “tough love” on making sure you stick to your job hunt goals!

As always, please share this video using the share buttons at the bottom of the post!

And in the comments below, I want to hear from you!  What have you learned about hunting for a job without the “perfect” resume?  What strategies have you adopted for making a job hunt more successful?

Wishing you a wonderful week of success on all fronts.


PS. Remember, if you too have a question you’d like me to answer, you can submit it here.
