Breast Cancer: Post Treatment 0 - 6 Months: Looking For Work


It can take a while after end of treatment to feel back to yourself and on your game. If you are feeling depressed or particularly stressed give yourself time before going on job interviews. Your mood can come across to an interviewer and you may only get one chance with the particular employer.

If there is the least question about how you come across to an interviewer, get objective feedback by doing a few practice interviews with a friend you trust who works in the same or similar business.

Keep in mind that:

  • Your cancer history cannot be asked about in a job interview
  • The only question is what you can do physically and mentally today - not what may happen in the future.

If you have not been working because of your breast cancer:

  • Write your resume in a manner that avoids calling attention to that fact.
  • Consider volunteering to be sure you are ready to return to work and to update your skills.
