6. Make potential employers aware of your travel plans. You may not realize that it’s a common occurrence for employees to start new jobs and then take a break. For experienced professionals, it’s most often due to plans that can’t be changed like honeymoons, new babies or non-refundable vacations, but the same principle applies to new grads – if an employer wants to hire you, they will wait for you to get back from your break. So, still plan your trip, but make sure to discuss your plans with potential employers so you can settle on a schedule, or start date, that works for both of you.
