Happy Friday!
I had my first interview today after being employed at the same company for 12 years.
I really felt great after the interview BUT I totally forgot to mention that I have a cruise planned in March.

I sent an email thanking them for the interview, made mention of what I learned during the interview and closed with an apology about not disclosing my cruise during the interview.

How in the world do you get an approval instead of being ingored? I want to make sure... see more

I have a vacation coming up that's been planned and paid for a few months, but there's a few jobs that have recently popped up I'm interested in. I really want to submit my resume but I'm concerned they'll want to interview me while I'm gone. Should I be... see more
