I was laid off recently from my role as a Senior Product Designer at mid-sized startup and am currently 6mos pregnant. While I received severance (enough to cover me until after maternity leave) I am itching to have something lined up before then. Would love any advice/thoughts on navigating these situations especially when being interviewed for smaller companies - eg startups where I might be joining a team of ~2-3 designers.
- When in the interview process to disclose?
- If I were get to an offer say in my 8th month... what kind of negotiating is helpful at that point? I would essentially be working for ~a month then going on leave.
- Suggestion for companies that have supportive good family policies
