I have been unemployed since mid January 2017 and was just starting to get traction on a few positions when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I started my chemo last week and I will need to go every 3 weeks for 6 treatments and then surgery which will take me through the end of May. I was called for an interview on a position I am very interested in. How do I interview with them knowing that I won't be able to work through May (or possibly only one week out of every month - depending on my side effects)? My husband says to just go on the interview and not say anything until they offer me a job or ask when I can start. I feel uncomfortable doing that. In addition, as I am trying a new treatment that will help keep my hair from falling out, I can only wash my hair 1-2x per week and then not even blow dry it - so it does not look very professional / beauty industry looking. What do I do?
