I started a new job coming off maternity leave with my first. (Found our i was expecting my second like a month later). Then applied for a part time job when 20 weeks pregnant with my second child. Both positions I’m still at.
Totally understand your situation. I started working from home two years ago and ever since it’s a been a complete blessing to me and my family. It was so hard at first looking for a 9-5 a job again after I gave birth. But I now own a virtual call center and connect people to opportunities through my partnership.
I found an opportunity that lets me stay at home when my peanut comes. I work hard at the moment, but I know it will be all worth it at the end. I can already see the outcome and looking forward seeing what next year will brings!
I say do not give up! If you can’t find a job, look at the income opportunities! Be your own boss!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻
Hardest thing to do in Georgia. The company who hired me was Family Dollar, a dollar store. My resume is average & never stopped me from getting good jobs before. I got called back for an interview for multiple jobs. High end to low end type of jobs. It was a mixture. And After a while of rejection I started applying for any position but with job fields I have worked in. It was so discouraging to hear all the hiring managers say they can’t because I’m pregnant. Around this time I did a BIG move from New York City to Norcross, Gerogia. They also didn’t like that. I was only 20 years old too. And I looked the age of 16. So they all just did not take me seriously overall.
But I did get maternity leave from family dollar and was able to return back to work after my baby arrived and Postpartum was up. Family dollar surprised the heck out of me. I was very appreciative at how generous they had been to me. Even after I resigned, all my former coworkers were still so kind
I actually got a new job while pregnant with my first and got a new job while on maternity leave with my second (after starting the interview process while pregnant). I found coming in with a game plan made a huge difference! But a big difference was I started both jobs after taking leave...not started the job and then had to take leave a few months in.
