I’m now looking for a job but I think whether or not my heart agrees, my maternity leave has left an impact. Its getting so difficult to find good jobs. Saddening that such a lovely phase of life is being seen as a break ! :(

  • yeah don’t feel bad! if you have been away from work for a long time then you can go the RPL route so nothing that you have acheived is wasted. Do what is best for your family!


  • Good luck on the job hunt! Is there any chance you can supplement the household income by working from home? Obviously it depends on your skill set and how it translates to working remotely, but it’s definitely something to look into if you’re really dreading returning to out-of-home work.


  • Oh no, what a difficult position to be in. My son and his partner are the same. She has to return to work because they can’t survive on just his wage. So hard but a part of life nowadays


  • I totally agree. It’s certainly not a break, but your right as a mother to enjoy precious moments. I have a few regrets about not being able to be there more often due to work commitments in the early days.


  • Yes, I have a friend who’s finding it hard after twelve years.


  • Good Luck with finding a job. :)


  • I wish you all the best in your job hunting
