When in my job search I listened to a guy who said taking a vacation from his job search was a huge mistake. He lost momentum and found it hard to get back in the groove.
I was working 60 hours a week (10 hours a day, 6 days a week) in my job search. I could have used a vacation, but (a) I didn’t have money, and (b) I was to anxious to get a paying job to go off and frolick somewhere cool.
It seems to me I’ve read articles from career experts saying it is important to take a vacation during the job search.
I didn’t even want to stop working on holidays! I was anxiously engaged in finding that next job!
What do you think – should job seekers be able to (or, make time to) take a vacation?
