I'm Still Being Hunted After 2 Years!

I received a call from a headhunter (aka recruiter) about 10pm+ few days back, telling me he got my resume from his database. The conversation goes something like this:

HH: Ms. Jenny, according to your resume here, are you still working with this company (name not disclosed)?
Me: Err.. no... I quit that job 2 years ago.
HH: Oh, are you interested in this job offer with this IT company (name not disclosed)?

At the same time, Ben started fussing (almost his bedtime) and I decided to cut the call short.

Me: Actually, I've retired from IT line for 2 years already.
HH: Retired?!

I could imagine he got a shock of his life when he heard the word 'retired' since he's holding and looking over my resume while we were talking and he might have noticed that I'm still in my early 30s. So I clarified that I retired for now to be a full-time mummy.

HH: Ohhhh...But do you have any plans to return back to work at this moment?
Me: Umm... Not in this few years, probably when my kids are older and going to school I guess.

The call ended shortly with him thanking me for my time and wishing me the best in life and I did the same to him. Hmmm... I regretted not asking him the package offered (oh well, I could at least dream about the offer right?)

So yeah, it is nice and flattering to know that even after 2 years of staying off the radar in the IT line, I am still being hunted! At least I know when the time comes for me to decide to return back to the working world, I still have options! 

But like I said earlier, now is not the time yet. As for income for the family, God is good, and He still is, and I know, forever will be. Even after 2 years, we're still doing well and that proves God is watching over us and providing for our needs.

If you're a SAHM, will you want to return back to the working world? And why?

Not bad, it proves that you are still in demand. Have a nice day to you and happy blogging


That's great! Good for you!!
As for me, I didn't enjoy my line of work, so I'm not eager to return!

Jenny @ I'm a full-time mummy

Hi Aries!
Yes, yes, I feel so flattered hahaha, still in demand! You have a nice day too! Smile

Hey Steph!
I used to miss working in IT line, especially in my line, demands are high and supplies are low and you don't have to fight with tons of other candidates cos there's not many people who are skilled and knowledgeable in that area but after about 1 year being a SAHM, nah... I'm also not eager to return to the working world! ;P


That's great to be still in demand like that. You have every right to feel proud and flattered.

Working life again? Nah, not for me. Hated it. Love my life now as a SAHM and blogger...haha!

Hi Germaine!

Aww.. *blushing* But really, it is rare events like this that lifts me up when I feel depressed and stressed during one of those SAHM moments! Tong


Thats awesome Smile  Woohoo!

I work part time at a church office, so I guess I'm still in the working world, but {at this point} I can't imagine ever going back to a full time outside job.

Hey Aurie!
Woohoo! I'm happy to be getting your comments again! Still don't know why certain posts in my blog blocks the commenting for IE users Frown

Wow, with 2 girls and you're still doing a job? Regardless full-time or part-time, that is so cool that you can still manage everything!


I don't think I will be returning to the workplace anytime soon. It's really more rewarding being home with the kids then slogging at work where you are just a digit and not appreciated.

Jenny @ I'm a full-time mummy

Hey Dominique!
Oh true, true. Even though no pay, at least the thought that you're raising up your child and getting to spend time and watch them grow up is priceless huh? Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this!

Shelley (EvenAndy)

It is awesome that you are still in high demand!  I do not think that I am going to return to the traditional work force.  I am trying to make moves that will allow me to work for myself (in the home) even when the children get older.

Jenny @ I'm a full-time mummy

Hi Shelley!
I think I will consider working from home too when the children get older like what you said, but not within these few years I guess...

Working at home with kids is kinda hassle for me although it's only part time. I wish I could be able to become a SAHM only but it can't be help. I have to feed mouths in our house.


If I am a SAHM, I wont go back to the working world. I might think about it...but will definitely turn it down no matter how big the offer is. Afterall, parenting or mommyhood is what we do best and is known to be the highest paid job for all women. Because it is priceless Smile

Mrs. T

Yes, but not until they are older.
I am going to be homeschooling my kid(s) ...(there's only 1 at the moment) so who knows when I'll go to work. I'm working on an Etsy shop for organic soaps, cleaning supplies, body scrubs, laundry detergent, etc... so maybe that can be my little part time job for some extra money. But DEFINITELY will want a career when the kids are off at school in high school and college and out of the house. I'd go nuts staying home alone by myself with nothing to do !

Hi Lisa @ Family Help!
I used to consider working from home when I first had Ben but unfortunately, things doesn't work out so I ended up firmly decided to be a SAHM. I think deep down, all mums would want to stay home and take care of their kids Smile

Hey Anne!
Now with 2nd child coming, I won't consider going back to working world so soon! Though I would want to know what's the package being offered so I could dream about it hehehehe!

Hey Mrs. T!
Wow! Homeschooling! I often wondered how to go about it and my SIL (she has 6 kids) actually homeschools all of them. Total respect! Right now, I keep myself occupied (from going insane Tong) by blogging and doing product reviews.
