I submitted my resume to the possible job through a colleague who works there. Within a day, I heard back from the woman doing the hiring asking me about my availability for full time work. I'm pretty sure she was just trying to quickly categorize me. I told her that I can start before I finish my dissertation, but that since I am currently pregnant, I would not be available for full time until July. I thought that this might not come up until after I had interviewed, but I think my reply was professional. My husband has had some great advice for me, "If they don't respect your need for time after the baby is born, then you don't want to work there." I keep sticking with that.
