I'm currently 8 months pregnant and interviewing for a new job in a different state. My family and I plan to move back home once I deliver (my 3rd baby), so I am applying now for jobs since I know it could take 3-10 months to find a new (non-entry level) position. I am in a tough spot, because I want to be forthcoming with my interviewer and tell them that I am pregnant, which I have. However, I also have to tell them that I can't start until the end of summer or else I would lose my leave with my current employer and be in a position (if I am even eligible) to take unpaid leave. How do you approach this subject? What is the best strategy? Do I wait and tell them I am pregnant and my potential start date until after I am offered the position? Do I "rip the band-aid off" in the 1st interview?" I believe that if I am the right candidate, waiting an extra 3 months should not be a factor, as if you hire the wrong candidate, it could cost a company years in loss productivity. I'm looking for advice from supervisors, HR experts, and fellow moms who have dealt with this.
