I'm back to pick all your brains again!! I have a job interview next month and by then I will be 18wks pregnant. It's a job that really interests me and I know I can do it well, but I'm worried that the fact I'm pregnant will go against me.
I gave up my last job at 12 wks because of the physical nature (horse riding!). I'd applied for the other job before then but have only just been given an interview date. This job is only part time and I would hope to be able to do it until the end of august, the baby is due in Sep. (I'm having a problem free pregnancy so far, not even any morning sickness, and I'm making sure I keep active.) The job is seasonal (March- Oct) so I would miss the last month, which I guess is what might go against me. But I would be happy to pick the job up again next year, really it's too good an opportunity to miss!
Now legally I know I don't have to tell them I'm pregnant during the interview, but I don't want to feel I'm hiding anything. Has anybody else found themselves in this situation? How should I tell them, and at what stage during the interview? I know that if I wasn't pregnant the job would definately be mine, sorry if that sounds big headed!! I just feel that if they think I'm the best person for the job that they should give it to me, pregnant or not.
