/biz/ I am finishing up my MBA in may and after years of grad school I need a break.

How long of a break is acceptable before employers get concerned?
>>
Get an offer letter before graduating and call up our boss and explain you want to go on a holiday before starting work. most companies will be fine with this.

What kind of a break? How long do you want to take a break?

It's going to be a huge red flag when you start applying. If you need a break after getting your degree it signals you don't have a strong work ethic. Say after working a year or two at a new company, are you going to say you "need a break"?

Like a month long break. 2 weeks of vacation and 2 of r and r.

I currently work 30 hours a week in an internship and go to 3 classes.

I mean you said you want a month off, can't you just put that as you projected start date when applying for the jobs? A month is nothing really. But I would focus on getting a job lined up. As it gets closer to May you should start interviewing.

That brings up another question. In my internship I am filling in for a woman on maternity leave and she will be back in March so I can't leave until like the first of April.

When should I start applying? Is now too early?
>>
>>1763269

I did the exact same thing.

2 to 4 weeks is fine. Any more and you'll have a problem.

I did job fairs starting I think 3 semesters before I graduated. Employers know you are in school and if they are hunting for talent they are likely willing to wait. The one I landed I applied for about 1 month before graduating.

The interview process can take a while, for me the one I landed was quick, but I've heard people say they went back and forth for a month or two before finalizing an offer, start date, etc.

Yeah man, no employees ever need a break. It's not like most companies offer employees things called vacation time or PTO.
