My wife is returning to the work force after 10 years of being an at-home mom. She's had a few months in a part time evening job, and lots of volunteer work at the kid's school during that time. I've been using resume advice from this site (that worked great for me - an IT professional), but we're having a hard time using the MT format, coming up with accomplishments, dropping off the skills and "objective" sections, for examples.
Does the MT format and advice apply well for my wife, who doesn't have much work history? She's got some great accomplishments from volunteering, including an award from the school district, but it's hard to fill a page. She's more comfortable with a format that has a "skills" section where she can point out her knowledge of Word, Excel, Access, Dreamweaver, etc. She also feels I'm mis-applying advice that's really meant for high-powered professionals and executives.
I've searched the MT site for topics related to returning to the workforce after a long absence, but couldn't find good discussions.
Any advice or comment from you find folks in the MT community? Any good discussions that I missed?
