I just had a baby and have been on maternity leave. I want to use this window to transition my career. It’s been nerve wracking doing the search while caring for the little one. And at the same time I’m nervous about being presentable in the interviews and keeping a low profile with my current job. It’s a lot of stress! Did anyone have similar experiences to transition successfully during leaves? How do you stay sane?
I have no comment
oh god !! i feel her head is on the chopping block with your answers. i will say she could have disclosed the type of job she was in and why she wanted out. she could have detailed more of what she is going through .and what is her expectations are for a new job. she might want a career change, we do not know how to help this woman. the old saying you can't correct the past, let go and move forward !!!!!!
Calm down,you are not the first person s baby and want to ho back to work!!Do you have a nursery to take care of your baby? If so there should be no Problem/Are you going back to the same position before the birth of your baby? If so,it is the same as coming back from a vacation a weeks vacation, after a day or so your back in the swing of things!! Easy [email protected]👍back to your old routine!! GOOD LUCK!!!
Tanya Abney: Good luck. You certainly have the skills to do it. Do you have an account in LinkedIn? That's very effective. And, you know, you can tell your potential employer that you want to have the written job offer before they can contact your employer right? You could also do private coaching with all your experiAll the best to you!
I say go for it and dont let up.You're obviously not happy where you are and this is the perfect opportunity to do something about it. Good luck.
One day at a time and try to go either bathroom or bedroom for 15 minutes. Turn off lights and close your eyes. Try to mediate and to relax. Then come out calmer and try to organize what you are going to do the next day.
Well said my friend. When a company wants to get rid of you, they'll find anything petty to do it within the law. Way to go, Tanya. Congrats on your baby and you will find something soon that will fit you better in the work environment. Keep your head up.
hello Vernon. Individuals are entitled to paternity leave according to the law. if an individual can multitask while using the maternity leave and improve for their future at the same time, that's legal to do. You would be the one I wouldn't hire. It sounds to me you need to find compassion for other human beings.
I think it tells your perspective employer that you dont have ANY regard about your current employer! To take the maternity leave to find another job somewhere else is pretty dirty in my book! That money you're getting paid comes from somewhere.... I wouldn't hire you just for that fact!
