NEW YORK (April 27, 2016)  In honor of Mother's Day, TopResume today announced the results of its nationwide survey to uncover working mothers' priorities regarding employment gaps and returning to work. With responses from more than 700 career-driven moms across the country, TopResume's poll revealed the number-one gift that working moms want is the flexibility to balance their careers and families.

“As a working mom myself, I can understand the struggle that many working mothers feel to be 'superwomen' at both work and home,” said Amanda Augustine, career advice expert for TopResume. “However, you shouldn't have to give up a job you love in order to gain more flexibility at work. If work-life balance is important to you, don't be afraid to ask for these benefits during the negotiation process.”

More results from TopResume's Mother's Day survey are as follows:

  • 83% of women go back to work after having a baby

  • 75% of women found flexibility and balance as a concern when going back to work

  • 50% of women didn't know how to position employment gaps on their resume

On an ongoing basis through its data-science team, TopResume compiles data provided by its customers nationwide to better understand current behavioral trends in the job market.
