Finding a job while pregnant

Keista - posted on 08/20/2014 ( 1 mom has responded )




I'm 25 weeks pregnant and im due December 1 and I don't have a job and I really need on. But im afraid to try and get a job since im so far along. im afraid that if I have an interview the interviewer will see my stomach and not want to hire me. is there any place that would hire me even if im pregnant?

A lot of place will hire pregnant is actually illegal for them to not hire you just because you are pregnant if you are the most qualified applicant.

That said, because you will not have been with your new company for a full year by the time you give birth, you will probably not get any compensation during your maternity leave, nor will your job be protected by FMLA while you are away. Because the company will be burdened with finding, paying, and training someone to work in your position while you are away, you might be used to fill a temporary gap, then replaced with a more permanent employee shortly before your leave begins.

If I were you, I would get a temporary job for now, then pursue permanent employment after you have your child. I know temp jobs do not pay much, but it is better than nothing at all.
