I’m currently in campus recruiting&really would love to move to a new organization, however, Im pregnant&am expecting in January. I feel like no one will consider my candidacy seriously after hearing i am expecting. I know hiring managers can’t discriminate against hiring me because I’m pregnant, but I also dont want to be dishonest that if I start anything, I would be heading out on maternity shortly. How would you proceed? Suck it up being miserable at current company and try the switch after?

I didn’t sign a contract, there’s no clause that states I need to take the position.

I have seven years' experience in executive search (based in APAC but have worked on global roles) and want to leave the industry for either an in-house talent role or a consulting firm. I haven't had much luck when I've applied for internal roles in the past.

If so, what are some things that have worked/didn't work for you. Do you like it?

Is there any reason not to apply to all M7 schools for scholarships? I feel like I have a decent shot of getting $ at an M7 and even if say, Sloan is my top choice and they don’t give me money, having a $$$ from Booth or Kellogg would give me a ton of leverage in negotiating.
