Take A Career Timeout

There’s a different vibe in the workplace on the Friday before a holiday weekend. People are happier.

No anticipation of Sunday night stress. No preparing for Monday morning meetings. They’re eagerly looking forward to a long weekend and a shortened workweek.

The agenda calls for pleasure: relaxing, watching a parade, getting away, seeing family and friends and maybe firing up the barbecue.

Before you bolt for the door, however … try touching base with some of the folks in your career network you haven’t spoken with in a while. Ask how things are going and wish them a happy holiday.

Then take a well-deserved break and enjoy your Memorial Day weekend!
