This Toddler Was Invited On A Job Interview With His Mom After She Couldn't Find A Babysitter

The kind of company culture parents dream about.

Maggie Mundwiller is a mother of two who recently shared her very unique experience at a job interview:

In her video — which has over 8 million views — Maggie shared how she was invited for a second job interview but didn't have anyone to watch her 1-year-old son, Mylo.

After explaining the situation to her potential future employer, they let her know that they were kid-friendly and that Maggie could bring Mylo to the interview!

So, Maggie got Mylo all dressed up and even made him his own résumé to bring along... 🥺 And, if you couldn't already guess, she had an amazing meeting with the company.

Key highlights of Mylo's résumé include: taking off his own diaper, smelling flowers with his teeth, and he can destroy a clean space in 30 seconds.

BuzzFeed spoke to Maggie, who said that the job she interviewed for was for a marketing/sales position in the Senior Living industry. "The interview certainly felt more laid back than a traditional one. I could be my authentic self without hiding parts of my personal life," she said.

And adorable little Mylo got to sit through the whole interview with her. Maggie admitted that, at times, it was a bit distracting to have him there, but that her interviewers understood and were very supportive. "Mylo even spotted a pickle on the table and my potential employer offered it to him. It was really funny and sweet."

Maggie's TikTok is now opening conversations about the need for "family-friendly" and "child-friendly" workplaces.

One person said "Dear corporate America - make this normal"

"'Family-friendly' workplaces will look different in every workplace. I don't think bringing your children to work is the perfect solution or the only solution. It starts with a conversation in organizations. I want businesses to look at their organization and see where they have room to be more inclusive," she explained.

"It could be creating a family-friendly culture, flexible schedules, remote opportunities, parental leave (inclusive of ALL genders and longer than 6 weeks), childcare in the workplace (if that is an affordable option for the business), etc," she added.

"I want the momentum to continue. I am hoping that employers will evaluate the opportunities they have in their organization to do better and support their employees/potential employees with families," Maggie said.

One person said "It makes soo happy to know there are companies like this!"

And, if you were wondering — Maggie did receive an offer from the employer, but she is making sure it is the right fit before accepting. "I hope parents will feel validated by my story. I want them to know that they are not alone. I hope people will continue to share their experiences with me so I can help elevate their voices and inspire changes in the workplace."

In addition, Maggie is creating a list of family- and child-friendly organizations so job seekers can find them more easily. "I will be launching a website soon (MylosList.com). For now, employers who want to be included in this list can email me at myloslist@gmail.com with their business name, contact info, and how they consider themselves family-friendly," she said.
