Connecticut – Employment Options for Single Mothers



There are no doubts that sometimes we don’t enjoy our jobs or maybe we just want to search for new opportunities. Maybe you’re one of those people who was recently laid off and that can be a devastating situation, especially if you are a single mother. It’s bad enough with two incomes or if you’re childless but when you’re the only income and you have a child or more than one child, money needs to be flowing in for your children. Whichever situation you’re going through, there are opportunities for you with both online and offline resources, and both worldwide websites and Connecticut based websites.

Whether you know this or not, it’s still not an easy task sometimes and it can be quite the difficult task to find a job. I can’t get the job for you but I can provide a few resources for you to look through and hopefully they can assist you in same way. With any luck, you’ll find something you can apply for or search through, or maybe you’ll get information on something you didn’t otherwise know.

You put in your city and an optional keyword, or use the advanced setting and see what options you get.

This is definitely a good resource and worth a looking at.
