(cross posting from August DDC) So I work full time + (i.e. have a full time salaried position and I do consulting work on the side). I am not happy in my full time job for a variety of reasons (lack of flexibility, micromanaging boss, less than ideal benefits package/salary) and was hoping to return part -time anyways (they don't know it yet). If i returned part time, I would then increase my consulting work, which thankfully will be available because as it is right now i am turning away work weekly and there is no indication that this will change in then next six months.
Because I am not happy in this job, i have been looking sporadically for alternatives. I had one interview early on in my pregnancy, but after learning more about the job (a lot of travel) and having a discussion with the hiring team who I knew already on a professional level I decided against it.
So, today i came across a posting that looked great. Its part time, literally around the corner from my house and work that i would be really interested in. I somewhat impulsively sent in my CV, not thinking i would get a response because i have applied to the organization in the past and not been chosen for interviews. Of course, this time, three hours later I get an email asking me to come in.
It will be clear that I am pregnant when I go in. I hope they will not be too disappointed. I am really interested in hearing more about the job anyways.
Has anyone ever been in a similar situation? Did you get the job? How did you work around your pregnancy?
