Maybe she does, maybe she doesn’t, but if she’s looking for work, she can search the best companies for working mothers for employment.

“Stay-at-home mom” probably isn’t a familiar concept to people under the age of 30. Once upon a time, before wages flattened while inflation continued to grow, a single income was sufficient to buy a house, put food on the table, and take the family on a short summer vacation.

Suggesting to a typical working mother that she stay home will likely earn the one asking a thump on the ear. But there are quite a few moms in the country who have spent some time at home, usually with very young children, who are ready to rejoin the world of work.

(Note – the author is in no way suggesting stay-at-home moms do not work. Emails to the author recommending he undergo the sort of dire consequences normally reserved for the big boss at the end of a video game will be cheerfully recycled.)

SimplyHired.com, noted recently for its ‘Simply Fired’ contest that earned a pizza-eating firee a Caribbean cruise, will partner with Working Mother magazine on a new job search, according to a press release.

WorkingMother.com recently announced its 100 Best Companies list, and job searchers can apply “Working Mother 100 Best” as a search filter at the Simply Hired web site. Users will perform a search first, then on the results page apply the filter, located in the dropdown menu under “company filters” called “ranked lists.”

A search centered on the home of WebProNews, in Lexington, Kentucky, shows results for firms like IBM, Merck, Schering-Plough, and Wachovia among others. Searches can also begin at Working Mother’s web site.
