Pregnant And Going For Interview, What Should I Wear? by nossycheek(f): 11:03am On Feb 26, 2008
It may sound amusing but I am heavy and have an interview to attend as I seriously need to change my job. My questions are:
Am a professional with years of experience

what are the chances that I will be given a fair hearing considering my preg?
what can I wear to look smart enough?

I have shunned an earlier one with another company because of it.

Please dont shun interview b/c of pregnancy. The baby is bringing you luck and you are shunning it. Dont you have suits? Just put your hands and forget about buttoning it. You will still look smart in it. The priority here is your performance please. CONGRATS!!!

Thanks Jenik for the encouragement. I really need a change as I am bored with my present job.
Once again thanks.

being pregnant is not a plague or a disease, i will suggest a white camisole like a tank top that will cover the tummy instead of a shirt since u might just not button ur jacket and ur shirts at dis stage mite just be tight and uncomfortable. u r good to go in black suit with a white tank top if it covers all d way aight. try not to be irritated durin d interview, it is well!

Sorry oo, i will better advise you to drop the pregnancy at home before you go for the Interview, and when you come back you carry your Pregnancy Back, So Simple. grin grin cheesy

No one will want to employ someone who in the next few months will need to go on leave to have a baby and stay at home for some months. You need to be in that job for a while to enjoy that benefit. anyway if you get the job you can't hide your stomach forever. I wish you all the best but you may find it hard getting a new job.

that does not mean one should stop applying. In anycase, you don't know how soon they want to fill the vacancy. some openings stay for 3 months

look cheek, dont mind these people that are discouraging you. When I once attended an interview with a pregnant woman and she got that job. I know that banks might not like the idea but do you know when this people will all successful candidates? That pregnant woman delivered before the appointment letter came out and we couldnt even recognise her again. Please what is yours is yours whether you are pregnant or not. Just pray for strength and boldness on that day.

Not wanting to let this opportunity pass, , i think this neoblack fella is just a spoilt little schoolchild, who does not seem to make for a serious discourse partner.
His signature even shows a high level of immaturity,
little minded simpleton!
