Job interviews  and being a parent 

In a job interview most people fear that dreaded curve-ball question; the one that has you racking your brains for something suitably intelligent yet unique to say. However what happens when your children are bought into the equation?


A newly released employment survey by D-CYFOR reveals that 20% of parents admit to having been asked during a job interview about how having children will affect their ability to work.

This figure increases to 26% when it comes to mothers whereas it decreases to 13% for fathers.
