Q. Dear Bill,
I am currently searching for a full-time job, but will be looking to go part-time in the coming year, as I am expecting my first child. Although I am not showing at the moment, I will be attending interviews shortly and am curious whether or not I should bring my pregnancy up during the meeting. I donít want to hurt my chances of getting hired, but I also want to ensure that the hiring manager is aware of my situation and can offer me the type of employment I will soon require. How should I handle this?

~ C.L.
A. Dear C.L.,
Building a relationship with the employer starts right from the interview stage and trust is an important aspect of maintaining a healthy relationship. If youíre not showing and the hiring manager doesnít bring it up, you are not legally obligated to disclose it. If, however, the hiring manager mentions that within the first 6 months of your employment, you must travel out of country to attend training, you should make mention. After all, you do want to be as upfront as possible, while ensuring that your situation does not infringe on your candidacy.

~ Bill
