Sort Out Care For Your Child
The first thing that you need to do is sort out care for your child. You need to look into infant day care options or ask someone you know and trust to look after your child. You’re not going to be able to go out and build a career if you are constantly worrying about who you have left your child with though, so make sure it is someone that you can actually trust. Once you have got this arranged, you’re going to be free to go and show the career world what you’ve got.
Don’t Be Afraid To Show Off

You need to show off in order to get the job, but without being arrogant about it. This is a fine line and you have got to learn how to toe it without going onto the other side.
There are ways that you can talk about all the skills that you have without coming across like you know it all. There are ways to say that you have experience without sounding like you’re better than everyone else because you did X.
