Hi ladies, I am a long term BH member but wanted to create an under cover account given that I am talking about changes in my workplace.
I currently work in a govt role and have been for a number of years. I found out a few weeks ago that my position is being relocated (we live in between two big cities - currently based in city B and my job will be soon based in city A). The travel time to city A is ridiculous. I much prefer traveling to city B and I am closer to home and my child's daycare.
The thing is I am in the 3rd tri of my pregnancy so I am not in a position to look for a new job now. I just don't know what I will do after mat leave - I will have two kids, one in school and I feel like I need to be closer to home.
The type of work I do is marketing and communications. What kind of job could I find locally that I could utilise these skills?
Is there any courses I could do to extend my skills, train in something different but still leverage off the degree I have (Bachelor of Business)?
I feel so lost and confused. My job will still be there (hopefully) when I return from maternity leave, but I feel like I need some sort of plan or have options. I feel so stressed about this.
If you have any ideas or advice I would greatly appreciate it.
I feel like even though I will still have a job to return to, as a mum I won't be able to do that job anymore and need to think of my family and what other options I have locally. It's such a kick in the guts because I was quite happy working out of office/city B and am paid quite highly to do my role.
