Making the jump to industry. I’ve got 3 final interviews either later this week or early next week, so I’m hoping I’ll be able to give my 2 week’s notice sometime next week. Problem is I have a vacation scheduled for the week of August 23rd that was approved by my company & the companies I’m interviewing with said I can start after. If I only have a week and a half of work before my vacation starts, do I offer to work the week after my vacation before leaving? Or just work until vacation?

I'm in a similar pickle. My current plan is to overlap final week at deloitte with first week elsewhere...not sure if that'll come back to bite me (eg background check showing overlap)

They already knew you were going to be gone that time and had to adjust. This is an extended adjustment. I wouldn’t do it, a half a week won’t make a huge difference in your relationship with the firm

So just do a week and a half notice? Haha got it. Thanks for the advice

I recently learned that EY’s policy doesn’t let you take vacation during your notice period. So you’d have to work or be available to work during the 2 weeks leading up to your last day. You may want to double check with HR.

Work through but don’t do much work lol. Take a few sick days and get paid out your pto

Give notice during your vacation. Since EY is now on unlimited vacation, it’s in your best interest to take the vacation while still employed by EY.

For those that are observing yom kippur, have an easy and meaningful fast. For those with Jewish people on your teams, don’t wish them a “happy Yom Kippur” or ask them to “enjoy the time”- it’s a solemn holiday.

And it’s really terrible to guilt them for signing off early/taking PTO to observe.
