It’s holiday time, and many DC policy and not for profit groups close down the week between Christmas and New Year. A lot of government employees take leave then also. And with universities closed, not much happens until after January 2. So how do you prepare to go on vacation?
This piece by Kate Johanns in the Washington Post’s Business Section is a helpful list of how to prepare to leave and come back. It’s a good guide to reducing stress related to vacation leave.
I am a career coach, consultant, and head of a not for profit - the Forage Center - that offers humanitarian education training. I also teach at George Mason University and Drexel University. A one time lawyer, I spent many years teaching in a community college where I was a Fulbright U.S. Scholar teaching in Estonia. I'm the author of Peace Jobs: A Student's Guide to Starting a Career Working for Peace (IAP 2016). I've been married to my best friend for over 31 years and we have two well adjusted adult children who teach me something new everyday. I live in Rockville, Maryland.
