Staffing Agency Finds Work for Stay at Home Moms

Mom Corps is an Atlanta-based staffing agency that specializes in finding temporary or contract work for lawyers, accountants, vice presidents of marketing and the like who are now stay-at-home parents. The work typically can be completed in 10-20 hours a week, and many of the projects can be done at home.

The company was started by Allison O'Kelly, a certified public accountant with an MBA from Harvard, who left the management track at Toys R Us after having her first child. O'Kelly tried being a stay-at-home mom for three months, but it wasn't for her, and so she started a bookkeeping business from home. As O'Kelly got more work than she could handle, she farmed out the extra work to other at-home mom friends. Thus, Mom Corps was born.

See a media story here about the company's new Charlotte office or visit Mom Corps' website.

Moms Corp also reminds us of an article appearing in May 2005 on about the law firm of Lewis & Malone, which actively recruits lawyer mothers to help handle its appellate advocacy work.
