Lol yes that should always be fine. I would just tell your team ASAP that you had scheduled a vacation prior to hire.

Do it. Nobody will care

Yes, that’s plenty of time. Take a look at the vacation policy when you start next week, which outlines how much notice to give depending on the length of vacation. Also add the vacation to your schedule since your experience manager will be looking at that to line up your first project (if not already booked). You’ll be fine 😊 welcome to the firm!

Recruiter won't know who to pass the info on to anyway.

Yes of course.

Yes of course. Stick to your plans. When you’re starting just inform your manager & it won’t be a problem I’m sure.

Yup. Once you get staffed on a project just immediately notify your project team of your planed time off

Yes. Nobody cares — best part about EY.

Tell them now

Hi Ladies, I just need to talk my thoughts out. I’m about to visit my SO’s family with him out of state and stay for four days. I agreed to do so a few months back.

I’m about to head to airport soon and really really really don’t want to go. But I feel bad for cancel so last minute. This is purely on my bandwidth, not them…

How do I divide the chores in this case? I’m the breadwinner - husband has been taking time off from work. No kids. Two dogs.

He does grocery shopping, yard work, some cooking. Is it unfair if I repeatedly ask him to do more? 😡😡
