I am graduating soon and I was fortunate enough to get two interviews so far. I did a second interview for one job and really really want to work on the unit I interviewed with. Given that I was asked to come back for the second interview, I think I have a good chance of getting it - and would want to accept the job if I did. I like the unit and the managers!
I am so grateful for this opportunity and I know it takes many new grads months just to get interviews. BUT... Long story, I was offered a chance to essentially take a 1.5 month paid vacation as a chaperone to a study abroad program in Spain. Of course, I can't let that pass without taking it!
So if I DO get the job offer, the job would start in March. I will be gone from July - mid August. Can I negotiate that - is there any way a nurse manager will let me leave for six weeks so soon after starting? How flexible are the terms when you start a job? Any tips for negotiating this leave if I do get the call for the job offer?
