So, I just graduated nursing school, my licensing boards are Monday and I’m sending out resumes like crazy. Our wedding is in less than 6 months (deeeep breaths, Mattel). How do I approach this with prospective employers. I know I will have to take unpaid timeoff for the wedding, but I’m planning on being away from work for 1 1/2 – 3 weeks. Advice?

just be upfront from the start, and be clear that you plan to use all your “vacationing” up earlty and wont be asking for extra vacation all the time!

Aww don’t worry! I am going though the same sorta thing (just moved, wedding in a month and applying for jobs…). Be upfront from the start and make sure you are careful about shower dates/tastings/etc not being on days you’d need to take off (wedding and ‘moon will be enough) 🙂 good luck!!!!!

Honestly, I wouldn’t say anything. It is something that is a while away and you might have some vacation time by then that you could use. If you were starting a job now and then having the wedding next month, I would tell them but with the wedding being 6 months away you have some time.

I would tell them when you have an offer in hand and get it written in your offer letter. I had a similar situation, I had a previously planned/paid for vacation but then was laid off, and when I got a new job offer I asked for the vacation time to be written in and I ended up still getting paid for it. Now you may or may not get paid for it, but be upfront about it, and hopefully they’ll be willing to work with you.
