I have a masters degree but I can’t get a better job because I am a single mom.
I live in a country where a single mom is considered to be some sort of “sl*t”(sorry to be rude). I have been interviewing for almost a year for positions that suit my degree/work experience. They are nice at the beginning, but once I tell them that I am a single mom to my 2 year old girl, they totally change their attitude toward me and never contact me again.
I got very far with one company who gave me some tests and I sort of made a presentation to show my ideas etc. Then they snooped around on my Facebook page, and spoke with an acquaintance of mine, asking about my personal life and my situation. Then they called me back telling me that they didn’t want me after all. I now have a job that treat people badly, working longer hours than others etc. I am looking for a new one, but I am still facing the same discrimination again and again.
