Question of the Week | July 16th

What’s happened to your marketability as an employee?

This is a hot one for many of us, and I just talked about it with one of my girlfriends this past weekend.  There’s no doubt that having kids affects how you’re treated in most workplaces, and the treatment varies widely I think. My friend knew she’d been passed over because of her mom duties, and that’s a widespread problem.  I also just saw an article on some parents being able to take their kids to work for the first 6 months or so, putting cribs in their workspaces!  How has your career been affected?  Does it bother you?  Are you afraid of the “10-year-nap” and waking up from it to a different workforce and not knowing how you fit in? 

So, just come on over to the Labelings section and share your thoughts, so we can know we’re not alone! 

The members who’ve already shared their thoughts will be entered in the drawing also, but don’t count towards the 7 answers needed.
