Because I am the single parent of a young daughter, the mindset of corporate America is not generally conducive to the type of work/family arrangement I required. Corporate jobs often require a set work schedule-- often 8:00-4:30 or 9:00-5:00, and working later in the day like this would leave my daughter in day care after her school hours for quite a long time, which is not desirable. Also-- having to work a set schedule makes it difficult to schedule medical appointments etc.for my daughter. A more flexible schedule with a company that allowed telecommuting is more conducive to being a single parent.
