When Should You Apply For A Job?

Tue Jun 22, 2010 11:23 pm

Okay.. I just graduated from high school a few weeks ago. I will be attending community college and I am looking for a job, not really active in doing so at the moment because I am going on a trip to NY for a month. Should I apply for the job now before I leave (departure date: 06JUL) or when I come back home (return date: 04AUG)? I think I'd rather start off as working part-time because of school, but another question: What would the employer say/do about this type of circumstance? Low key, this is kind of stressing me out. Small, but it really is..

Apply when you get back. Last thing you need is to leave and then have your new employer ask you to show up within 24 hours.

I'd tend to agree--apply when you get back. Especially for a line-level job, it would be a negative for you to basically become an employee and take a month "off" right off the bat.

I agree. Kudos on the diploma btw. I know it's important to make some money on the side, but worry more about school work. That should come first and foremost. Regarding the whole circumstance with you being in community college, I'd like to think that any employer (almost any) would be willing to work you around your class/homework schedule. I'm sure you'll find such and employer. I know my employer willingly did so when I went for my Masters degree, and they do so for the undergrads employed there as well.

That's what my thinking was.

Would Swissport be one of those employers?

Anyway, thanks for the advice, guys. It's helped ease the anxiety..

Apply on your return.
In case of an Urgent call you are prepared to start off at notice.
I may not win often, but I damn well never lose!!! ;)

Okay, but it might take a while to make its way up here..and that's if my camcorder decides to work by then.
