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…

I have a choice to make

I am going on vacation in July, but I also have my Masters Degree in Criminal Justice, and have been researching jobs before I leave. Should I apply for jobs knowing that I will be leaving for a vacation in the latter half of July or wait until I return to apply?
