rexzeppelin Posted November 14, 2013 Share Posted November 14, 2013 I'm getting applications ready for PhD programs to start next fall, currently living at home unemployed. I got a full-time job offer today from a biotech lab to start in a couple weeks. It's with a cool company that I'd love to get experience with, to help figure out if industry is something I'd like to do after school. However in my job interview I mentioned nothing about my grad school plans, fearing it would be the kiss of death. Now I realize if I took the job I don't know how I'd ask for vacation time to attend interviews in only 3 months time, and would then leave 9 months after starting (assuming I get in somewhere). I really don't know what to do here, I don't want to burn bridges with this company that I genuinely like, but if I decline the job, apply and get rejected everywhere I'll feel like a complete idiot. Any advice here? Honesty with my employer? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
