40 Funny Ways to Say 'Mom' on Your Resume

32

resumeWe all know moms have the hardest and most important job of all. Yet up until now, we'd never dream of actually listing that title on our resume. Did you ever stop to think why not? Right! There is NO good reason why women shouldn't boast that role, and why employers wouldn't be lucky to have us.

After all, moms can do EVERYTHING. Career experts are finally recognizing this and suggesting mothers include their child-raising experience as one of their qualifications for outside employment.

But are you a "domestic manager" or "household engineer"? Many websites offer tips on how to structure your resume to reflect being a full-time mom, like bringing attention to your skills and volunteering. These are all great tips, but in this economy, you really have to sell yourself with an extra-special, attention-getting title.

Here are 40 of our favorite, funny ways to say "mom" that might work for your resume (just don't blame us if you don't get the job):

  1. Household CEO

Of course, putting any of these on your resume will have employers laughing you out the door, but most of these labels for moms make sense to me. Then again, if our world was such that moms could list everything they've become experts in since having kids, their resumes would be at least 10 pages long.

What other funny job titles would you list on your resume?

My mom used to say "Chief Cook & Bottle Washer." ... Being a single mom, I've done a fair amount of handyman stuff like assembling large, heavy pieces of furniture, repairing all kinds of things, wild animal control (the critters from the woods want to live in my basement), etc. I'm also somewhat of a Natural Healer. Also manager of subcontracted personnel - maids, lawn guys, nanny, etc. Also, financial planner for the long term. The rest of the stuff is pretty routine, summarized as "I do it all."
