    Per diem sometimes requires a commitment of X shifts per schedule, with other specific requirements, but is otherwise at mutually agreeable times. However, new grads are not usually hired per diem

    Just wanted to update if anyone was curious. I got a part time 24 hr position at a hospital and my orientation starts mid January!! Don't have any money left from the summer anyhow after paying the first couple months of student loans and for my gas, so I'm glad that I didn't book a trip, it wouldn't have been feasible at all money wise or time wise! So happy I will be able to start my career without worrying.

    Once you are hired for a job, then you can bring it up and say, "Hey, I already bought tickets and planned a trip" blah blah blah. But don't bring it up during interviews or anything. I know new hires who had a trip planned out and everything before they even got the job... they told the manager and she adjusted the schedule accordingly with no complaints and said she's try to make it work out....... and it did. If you work 3 days a week, then just work the 3 days before you leave and you're set for that week... ya have the rest of the time off. As far as taking TWO weeks off, I don't know.
