So I know it is not the business of future employers if you are married or engaged. I am getting married in a little over 2 months and I know I am going to need about 2 weeks off for the honeymoon. I feel it is dishonset to not say anything if I were to get hired.
My question is once a company makes an offer do you just say, btw I need the last 2 weeks of September off?
Help me bees!

That’s exactly what I’d do. Wait for the offer, and as part of your negotiations, say that you have already booked a non-refundable vacation, and you’ll need that time off in order to accept. I did that once when I was offered a job… wasn’t an issue!

I think it would come up during negotiations. You’ll have to find out what their leave policy is and make sure you’d be able to get those two weeks off so soon. It would work out best for both parties to discuss your leave plans after you are offered the job, but before you accept.

That’s exactly what to do.
Wait for an offer and then tell them that, in order to accept, you’ll need to be able to take time off from X date to Y date for a previously planned vacation.
Shouldn’t be a problem for most places.

Tritto the above. Its exactly what I did for planned vacations. I was hired in late November, and still went home for 1.5 weeks over xmas. I did do some work remotely, but I let them know as we were in negotiations… speaking of which dont forget you can negotiate! Don’t just settle for what is offered. Ask for more vaca, or sick time, of flexible hours etc. Now is the time.
