Worried about taking a vacation while job hunting? Here’s how to do both
The summer months can be a tough season to job hunt: The majority of your contacts might be on vacation, enjoying summer hours or merely trying to get as much crucial work done as fast as they can so they can hit the beach.
But while you might be putting much of your outreach on hold, you also don’t want to miss out on any actual jobs that do come up. And, it’s also summer for you, after all, and you have time on your hands.
That can create a dilemma for a full-time job hunter, whether you had a vacation planned before your situation or you decide to take advantage of your time “off” to enjoy a visit with friends or family. Being inaccessible as that HR director you’ve been trying to track down finally contacts you can be a roadblock for your interviewing strategy.
