I am 8 months pregnant. I have applied to so many places and never get chosen because of being pregnant. I know that they may not want to hire someone who may have to be out in a month but I had this problem when I was 6 months too. If I didn't need the job or money I wouldn't apply until l I have my baby and recover. Unfortunately with the way things are I need to work. How do you handle this?Answer Question

While it is illegal to not hire someone who is pregnant, you need to see the employer's point of view: before you are fully trained for the position, you will be going on maternity leave, and may not come back. Keep looking, and stay positive!
