A Life Between Jobs
"Many young people in the workplace are finding that quitting their job is becoming the satisfying new alternative to the standard, entry-level benefit for vacation. As they found out, the two weeks allowed to most young employees is barely enough time to visit their parents for Christmas, go to a friend's wedding and take a long weekend.
'Normal life,' Taylor Aikin said, 'maintaining relationships with people who don't live nearby, requires at least two weeks of your life a year.'
For others like him, the solution is simple: Stop jockeying with senior employees for the prime vacation weeks. Quit and start again — but first, get away."
