March 03, 2008
Hoboken, New Jersey - March 3, 2008 - Project Working Mom, which helps working moms break the cycle of undereducation and underemployment, today announced that it is teaming up with Job.com, the fourth largest job search and career management destination online, to provide a comprehensive employment and job center at www.projectworkingmom.com.
The Project Working Mom campaign, was established by eLearners.com, a division of EducationDynamics, to empower working moms with all of the resources they need to go back to school online and improve their lives.
"The barriers that stand in the way for working moms to achieve their educational goals - time, money and confidence - have been addressed by all of the elements and participating organizations involved in Project Working Mom," said Terrence Thomas, Chief Marketing Officer of eLearners.com. "Working with Job.com, Project Working Mom now has completed the picture for moms interested in going back to school, with the all important career center."
The Job.com career portal is the latest element added to what has been a major campaign to help working moms. Only 16 percent of single working moms have a degree, leaving eight million degree-less. In turn, only 22 percent of single working moms earn more than $30,000. Project Working Mom has been designed to answer the barriers leaving this population undereducated and underemployed. eLearners.com along with its partner schools, American Intercontinental University, DeVry University and Walden University have pooled their resources to deliver at least $2 million in full ride scholarships for their online degree programs.
"Project Working Mom is rapidly becoming a recognized resource for working moms to turn to for improving their lives through online education," said Thad Price, Director of Business Development with Job.com. "We at Job.com are pleased to become part of this important initiative by providing the information and resources moms will need to find the right job when they have achieved their education objective."
