Dear WordCount: How do I create a post-SAHM freelance resume?
I’m a former print reporter who quit full-time work when I had my first child. I worked successfully as a freelance writer until my twins came along and our family moved to a new city. Now that our fourth baby is approaching 4, I’m looking to pick up consistent, meaningful part-time work and I’ve just started pulling my resume together. Obviously, the work before freelance is easy to feature on the resume but I’m stumped with how to present the occasional freelance pieces I’ve worked on over the past seven years. Thanks! – D. D.
