Never Ask About Vacation Time on the First Interview

A very important aspect of work life is the amount of vacation time company’s offer. The longer you work for a company the more time off you accrue.  This can be a problem when you want to leave a job for a position at a new company. The typical vacation package in the USA for the first year of employment, regardless of your experience is 2-3 weeks.  Although your Summer vacation may be planned,  it is not a good idea to bring it up on the first interview. The first interview is for addressing your skills, accomplishments and finding out more about the role. If you bring up vacation time, you may give the hiring manager the impression you are more interested in the company’s benefits and time off than the actual role itself.  It is important to address vacation time, but wait until you know you are getting an offer, then you can bring it up.
