What to do for the best?(3 Posts)
Hi, not sure where best to post this but hoping to get some advice.
Basically I'm 27 and have been at my job for less thana year. I hate it as I have to travel so much and and field basedand travel all over the Uk. In an ideal situation I would get a new job closer to home ( that doesnt required lots of travel), work there for a few months then
start trying for a baby. Problem is I have been looking for a new job since may and despite having Interviews keep gettibg rejected. Over qualified or inderqualified. Can't find something that is at the level I want.
So anyways my thoughts are should I keep trying to juggle my current role, try to fit In interviews( which is hard when I am based all over the Uk) and wait for anew role then one I have settled try for a baby or should I get cracking now. Grin and bear my current job for 9 months thengo off on maternity and not go back? Think is my job is quite stressful am as I said I spend all day on the roads. Is this practical when pregnant? Early on it will be fine but I imagine later on it will be hard going?
Help and advice greatly appreciated !
Before the recession, my respond would have been different. I think you should draw up a pro/cons list of staying at your current role versus quitting before getting another job.
You have to make sure you are in a financial position before quitting as you know, there are probably 150 applicants per 1 vacancy.
Can your partner/husband support the family financially if you quit.
There's nothing that ruins a relationship quicker than financial strain so be smart and good luck.
Sorry for all the typos's ! Typing on my iPhone and can't seem to go up to view what I have already written. Typing fast on the small keypad...
Thanks fr your responce. I don't think I'll be able to quit now. What I meant was not to return after I have had a baby. ( get the maternity pay and run!!) well look for another job then.
I get so stressed out with my job and it makes me in happy. Plus as part of me things it is an impractical job to have whilst pregnant also I have the burden that I can't 'get on with my life, babies, wedding etc until u god a new one.
Just don't know what to do so hard staying motivate to keep applyIng for jobs and interviewing when u get rejected and each time I feel further away from being able to settle down and start a family.
Any other field based ladies out there that have had babies in that role? Is it hard going all that driving with a growing bump??
