What should I do?

I'm going to apply for my first big girl job but I also have a trip on April for Holy Week that we have been planning for two years. Problem is, that is only a few months away and I do not want to ask for off that early into employment (if I do get the job, of course). Should I not apply at all? Just looking for other opinions.

    I believe this has been stated, but if you mention the trip during the interview, most employers will accommodate you. You may not have accumulated any vacation time (so the days off may not be paid) but they should allow the time away from work. If they want YOU they should accept your schedule.

    I don't think a future employer will accommodate someone for taking a vacation, but apply to a lot of jobs and see what happens.

    Apply for the job.

    If you are hired, you can use your paid vacation time. Or, if the paid vacation time allotted is not sufficiently long, you can ask for unpaid vacation time.

      If you're at a fast food where PTO isn't offered, then I'm sure it's different, but the asker said 'big girl job'. I don't consider fast food type work a 'big girl job'.

    If it is part-time, ask away. If it is full time, don't waste your time or theirs. You'll rack up a "fired" so quickly.

    Go ahead and apply, it's far enough away. If you're offered the job though, tell thtem about the trip before you accept, and ask if you can have the time off unpaid.

    talk to your job about it, they might let you go

    It's 6 months away; not 'a few'. That is very common. Get yourself a job. Talk to them after you have it. Who knows, 6 months from now you may have quit or been fired!

    If they make you a firm offer, you bring up this trip. Do not mention it before they have made a decision, you do not want it to influence them to take another candidate. It wraps neatly into the discussion about your start date.

    Once they have made a decision to hire you, they will not change their minds on that basis. Employers can always work around a prior commitment.
