When it's personal
Asking for what you need
- Personal matters may force you to negotiate the terms of your position. When that happens, preparation counts.
- If you have personal constraints that you need to bring to the negotiating table, make the conversation about how it will help the company. For you to be able to give your potential employers what they need, you must get these factors settled first.
When it's pregnancy
- How do you pursue a promotion in the middle of your career? Do your homework, build your case with data and make it easier to say “yes.”
- Pregnancy is one of those times when your personal and professional lives compete for your attention. However, one can achieve balance with some careful planning.
