When’s the Best Time to Mention a Pre Planned Vacation?

When looking for work, ideally you want to be wide-open in your availability. However, living in the real world, we know there are restrictions on your time. One issue that comes up frequently is how to request time off during the process of recruiting and hiring.

It happens. Sometimes plans are made in advance and you have to balance job seeking with prior commitments. A lot of people feel uncomfortable going into a job and immediately requesting time off. This is where KB Staffing can help. We have a few tips for temp employees and temp-to-perm workers in Polk County to help avoid misunderstandings.

  • Be upfront about your availability, starting with the application. Accurately describe the times and days when you will be available for work so our full-service staffing agency can best match you to jobs that suit your schedule.
  • Let us know if you have a need for specific time off, such as a trip planned, or a planned medical event. There could be short-term assignments available to help you round out your work schedule around your other commitments.
  • If you are looking for a long-term assignment but are expecting to need time off early into the assignment, tell us as soon as you know what your time off request is. We can communicate with the client to find a workable solution.
