I was on maternity leave when Grace Hopper Conference tickets
I was on maternity leave when Grace Hopper Conference tickets became available unfortunately. I promised my team (two other women) that we would go but am having trouble finding an "in." Does anyone know of anyone who has extra tickets? If not, do you know any other routes I could go to get some?
IM WORKING AT MY JOB FOR 2 AND HALF YEARS. IT IS 100% COMMISSION. WE GET 30% OF OUR DEPOSIT SALES MADE WEEKLY. IM CURIOUS TO KNOW WHAT I SHOULD REQUEST FOR MATERNITY LEAVE OR WHAT I AM ENTITLED TO
I'm pregnant and due in February 2018. Unfortunately, my company is going to be acquired by another company and there are rumors of layoffs. As long as I'm on FMLA and there are no mass lay-offs, I should be fine. However, if there is a mass lay-off, I will loose my insurance at a time I need it the most. My upper management is unable to answer any questions and is not responsive to this concern at all. Any positive experiences with COBRA? I thought I would have a stress-free maternity leave but now I will need to look for a job. I was wondering anyone out here has interviewed while over 7 months pregnant? Do you face any bias? Are they open to taking maternity leave during the first 3 months on the job? I just need the insurance and its bad how its so strongly tied to the place of employment.
Any advice for someone searching for work during their first trimester of pregnancy? I currently work with a temp agency for income and am applying for my next role. From what I've read on the boards, it seems that most women are firmly established at their companies but I was forced to look for a new role outside of my former company due to a health condition. They were unwilling to move me to a different role within the company. Any suggestions on how to navigate the next 4-6 months before giving birth?
It's been really hard for me to let go and leave the baby to go to the office since coming back from maternity leave. However, I know I don't want to quit my job and stay at home. Any advice to make this transition easier?
