It might be a non issue. If you interview next week, it might take two weeks to give you and offer, and then you have your two weeks notice which will put you past your trip.

I think your bigger problem is whether you have cell service on the ship to be able to respond when they call to make an offer.

Bring it up only upon offer and be prepared to cancel your trip to get the job.

Another update. The new company is slated to make a hiring decision during the coming week, probably by Wednesday. I'm still in the running.

My vacation is exactly 2 weeks away. If I should get and accept an offer, say on Wednesday, how can I give a proper 2 weeks notice when I'm leaving in 1.5 weeks?

Between the less-than-stellar second interview and this horribly timed vacation, I almost feel like I'd be relieved to not get the offer. But given how dismal my current job is, I would be dumb to pass it up if I do.

Your current employer already has your vacation booked and that time should be included (mentally) in your notice period. The only issue, assuming that you receive the job offer, is whether or not the new employer can accommodate a start date after your vacation.

I would not give notice to your current employer until you have a written offer in hand. From that date give your current employer 2 weeks notice even if you are on vacation at the time.

I hope you realize you are stressing out for nothing. If an offer is made, ask for a three weeks notice period. Done.


Also, for all you know, the job may have a start date that is far in advance.
