WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM? ..BL.- JEREMY BULLMORE - SHOULD I REVEAL THAT I'M PREGNANT?

SHOULD I REVEAL THAT I'M PREGNANT?

Q: After looking for a new job, I have finally been offered a great senior position in a marketing firm. But now I've found out that I'm pregnant Should I tell the company before accepting the position (and so give them the chance to withdraw their offer) or keep my mouth shut and just take the job?

A: Project yourself ahead five years. You are now in an even more senior position. You interview a woman applicant, are greatly impressed, offer her a job and welcome her warmly when she joins. A week or two later, you begin to suspect (and she confirms) that she's pregnant. Your colleagues look at you with raised eyebrows: 'Didn't she tell you she was pregnant?'
