    Default sahm going back to work - help!

    Hi, i have been a sahm the past 3 years. I have to return to work for financial reasons. However, i do not want to work solely for money. That wont keep me in a job.
    I know what i want to do. I just have no idea how to get there after so long out of work.

    I just dont know who or why someone whould hire me. I depend solely on child care. i have no reliable friends or family close by. So "on call/out of hours" jobs wont be for me. I only want to be working 2-3days max. Weekend work on a rotated roster is fine.

    I just dont know where to start and im after any advice on experience from being a sahm for a while and going back to work.
    What issues did you find hard?
    What did you put on your resume for the years you were a sahm?
    is being a sahm "enough"???
    Do employer's judge being out of work for ages, sahm's???
    im worried about everything.
    Im keen to go back to work, but only if it's for a career.
    Please any advice?
    Thankyou.

    I just googled vet nurses courses online, and found a cert 4 in vet nursing through open universities. I think if you enrolled in this, and began your studies, you would be more likely to get a job in a vet clinic. It will show that you genuinely want to work in the industry, and will be something positive to put on your résumé that's recent.

    You could apply for any part time jobs you see, and hopefully work and study at the same time.

    Hth, good luck.
