Im currently employed (and recently went back after maternity leave) however Im not enjoying my old job anymore and a job that interests me has come up for our state government.
However I havent written a job application for at least 4 years and not since becoming a mum. So any help would be greatly appreciated:
a) Do I mention on my resume that I was on maternity leave at all? as in I have current job: 2009 - now but do I need to include I had 17months off?
b) One of the criterion is:
experience in handling and caring for babies. So again do I mention that I have a 21month old daughter so therefore experience in that area
c) another criteria is availability to do shift work: Again if I have mentioned my daughter above anywhere should I include that I have a mixture of daycare, my DH and relatives available to watch my child? Or does that not need to be mentioned.
So as you can see most of my 'issues' involve whether I mention I have a child. I do have examples of those other things without mentioning DD.
