Flexible Hours and Days for Working Moms

Work It Mama!

Often times, moms find joy in a professional career as it breathes life into adult conversations and keeps the brain stimulated. For many women, the ideal job is not full time since time with their babe is also important. But unfortunately, full time work is often the only option.

In an ideal world, many mamas would return to the workplace if they could negotiate a flexible schedule. A flex schedule allows working parents to "bend" the hours and days so that they can make the best of both worlds – family and career.

Realizing the need for experienced professionals and the lack of job opportunities for parents, three mothers started a company called Flexperience Consulting that matches skilled workers wanting flexible hours with companies looking for experienced workers. The result is a match made in heaven. Workplaces reap the benefits of practiced and talented employees while parents make the most of work and pleasure.

Some of the businesses that Flexperience Consulting works with are Levi's® Brand and PIXAR.

"For many women, the ideal job is not full time since time with their babe is also important." This implies that those who do choose to work full time rather than having to don't consider time with their baby important. I hope it was just a poor choice of wording.

This is a great company and it took far too long to come ahead. Something like this should be screaming through the US as fast as it can. Sadly we would rather ship jobs overseas than deal with American workers.
