Younger Women Plan Career Pauses

Even women with high ambitions are more likely than their predecessors to plan to scale back at work at certain times. According to The New York Times The youngest generation of women in the work force — the millennials, age 18 to early 30s — is defining career success differently and less linearly than previous generations of women. A variety of survey data
shows that educated, working young women are more likely than those before them to expect their career and family priorities to shift over time.

Should You Tell A Potential Employer That You’re Pregnant?


IMG_7579In 2012 at age 33, Talia Goldstein was a successful CEO of a matchmaking start up company. And she had a secret: she was pregnant. In an essay published this month in Fortune magazine, Goldstein shared a journal entry from April of that year. “It’s awful knowing that the second I reveal that I am pregnant, investors will suddenly second guess whether I am capable enough to run a company. So, I am going to hide my pregnancy as long as I can,” Goldstein wrote in her journal. Goldstein told ABC News Monday that she worried investors would not take a pregnant CEO seriously so she covered up. “In one meeting it was 80 degrees outside and I wore a trench coat,” she recalled. “But I thought, better off looking ridiculous than looking pregnant.” In an appearance Monday on Good Morning America, Women for Hire CEO Tory Johnson discussed the case and said it’s OK for pregnant women to conceal their pregnancy from would-be employers because mommy bias against pregnant employees is a reality.  “It is hard enough to get job and the reality is that being pregnant and showing is difficult and it’s almost permission to not choose you.” Check out what else Tory has to day in this video below.
