I'm currently 7 months pregnant and wanted others advice on getting a job. Is it literally impossible to get a job when I'm so far along? I really need some more income and haven't found any good work at home jobs. Being a stay at home mother is great but there's just not enough income to support my family.. Any suggestions would be helpful. thanks!

Bear in mind that it is hard for anyone to get a job right now. Just keep hanging in there and applying.

I hired someone who was pregnant. She was the best qualified candidate, she was open and honest about her situation, and she projected a lot of positive energy. Yes, she was off after only a few months for 6 weeks of FMLA leave, but she worked for us for a number of years and was one of the best hires we made.



I think it depends on many factors. I do know one thing, though, if you don't apply you certainly won't be hired.
