Books Info:

Careers and Motherhood, Challenges and Choices free pdf In Careers and Motherhood, Challenges and Choices Karen Mitchell interviews a range of women from a variety of professional backgrounds who have faced the reality of balancing career and motherhood. Careers and Motherhood, Challenges and Choices presents an overview of the key issues a woman may face in her lifetime related to having both a career and motherhood, and advises of tips, techniques and strategies to deal with each of these issues. It offers insightful and compelling recommendations for women in search of practical and proven ways to manage a career, and capitalise on the use of resources available before and after becoming a parent. There is a significant debate and coverage in the media about these issues and yet there are very few books, published either in Australia or overseas, that acknowledges each of these issues. There are books which might cover a single issue, there are also books which discuss the difficulties of trying to have it all and there is significant information available on motherhood, pregnancy and birth. Yet there is nothing that really says to the career woman "Here are the issues you might have to contend with and this is how you might do it." This book presents women discussing their remarkable experiences and the consequences of their decisions. How they balance profession, family and identity. The results are impressive and intensely personal. This book combines current views, opinions and advice and results in a very practical, informative and readable guide for women who deal with these key issues - chronologically presented from pre-pregnancy through to motherhood. It also includes the views of senior executives, recruitment specialists and others who influence the careers of women. A special feature is the unique voices of teenage children of career-mums, who talk about the impact on their upbringing.
