I say go to the interview and give them the low down, Toaster. Can't hurt..

This, because what have you got to lose? The worst that will happen is that they will say No, which is pretty much the same thing as if you didn't go to the interview. So things can't get any worse.

And you never know--they may be able to work around your vacation...or your vacation may actually sync well with their start date...

Best of luck!

I would just let them know you can't start until February.

Go to the interview. IF they offer you the job, THEN you tell them about your vacation and put it forward as a condition of your accepting it. They don't need to know before that. Once they have chosen you, the momentum is on your side. They won't want to have to start all over again.

I applied months ago. I didn't even think i would get a call from interview lol

I would go for it then. At the least you'll get some "face time" with the employer and more interviewing experience.

That's what I did and it worked for me.

Be open and honest. I interviewed the year my son was graduating high school. I respectfully told them me taking the job was dependent on me being allowed to attend. My boss actually worked it so I was done precepting on day shift before the event and started precepting on nights after. Honestly usually works well.
