Is there a suitable place to discus being at work or more specifically, careers advice or minor work problems (not employment issues or getting back to work) but somewhere to moan about the office, school run... and get advice about training and such like?

So like a Work Chat topic?

MrsRochestersCat Wed 12-Jun-13 19:28:28

Yes, exactly like that!

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 12-Jun-13 19:45:48

OK. It's a good suggestion.

Anyone else agree?

I would like to moan about work and coming back to a pile of laundry and washing up but I'm not sure anyone else would want to read it. grin

Ha ha ha ha!!! That's exactly what I've just been moaning about grin

I am sad enough to have enjoyed a thread about CVs and fonts - but I suppose we don't need a specific chat area for such things...

I would appreciate a Work Chat topic too, please.

Anyone else?

Not sure we need one

There are plenty of us working parents on here and you can always find somewhere to post

Too many topics just get lost

I would say you'd get a much longer and funnier discussion about the trials of tribulations of working parenthood in Chat, or Parenthood. If you are having a difficult time because a partner or teens won't pull their weight, Relationships and Teenagers are both excellent.

I think I would worry that your new topic wouldn't be much visited.

But I am usually wrong about everything so wouldn't take much notice tbh.
