My perfect job has come up...

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
....but as I'm pregnant I wouldn't be able to start 'til October. Should I apply anyway in the hope that they'll be stunned by how right I am for the job and keep me on record for the future, or let it pass me by?

    you could go for the job. depending on the job, they might not take you on if they know you are pregnant. they are more likely to want someone who isnt going to leave/take a lot of time off in a few months time. it sucks but its true. how about asking them to keep your details and CV and asking them to consider you for an interview in the future if any more jobs come up.

    Go for it <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> If you're honest with them right from the start they'll see that you're trustworthy and if they don't employ you this time, they'll most definately keep you in mind next time! <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">
