Re: Question about work promotion - New Beginnings LLL magaz
It's tough without more details about your position. Although not financially urgent, I decided to go back to work full-time because it kind of seemed like the only option for us the way my job works and because my DH moved where I live so my job is the only thing keeping us here. I decided, also, to continue with my overtime duties, although scaled back as much as possible (5 hours every 2 weeks most months, rather than every week). I also negotiated to work from home one day a week, which helps to make up for those days. If you can manage to negotiate anything (like working from home, flexible schedule) it might make it easier on you should you decide to take the promotion. It's very hard to turn such things down, but it's hard to be away from your baby, and I think communicating that to your superiors might end up making the situation better for you.
