Is there an ideal time of year to leave a job? I left my last job in May and it totally screwed up that summer because I couldn’t really take a whole bunch of PTO. Now I know I’m going to leave sometime this year and don’t want a repeat of last time, but not sure I can make it another 6 months.

Well based on your experience, probably after summer right?

The first after New Years seems like a good time for tax, at least where I work. Enjoy a slower fall, get a bunch of time off over the holidays, and don’t come back in January.

Leave within the first two weeks of January

How do you negotiate vacation time? For example, if I have a trip already cleared that’s about 9-10 days off in the next 2 months at my firm but go in-house (final round upcoming with me and another candidate meaning it’s at least 50/50), I don’t really want to start and then lose say 10 of 15 allotted vacation days right away. Anyway to negotiate those as exempted? Apologies if a stupid question, pretty new to this process
