Deciding on start date
Hey FGB! After being laid off in April due to Covid, I got a job offer! Yay me! I'm excited about it and have accepted. They are basically letting me choose my start date. It has to be a Monday, so I can start Dec 21 (right before Xmas), Dec 28 (right after Xmas), or Jan 4. I do celebrate Xmas, but given the pandemic, I won't be travelling to see family the way I usually do so I'm not concerned about having days off around the holiday. I'm eager to get started since I haven't been working for so long. However, the idea of waiting until after Xmas, just so it's behind me, or even Jan 4 to not have an awkward half month of working sound appealing too. Are there any things you think I should consider when deciding this? Any advice? I am so grateful to have found a new position and this is low on the list of most people's concerns, but I figured this was the networking/career group to ask. Thanks in advance!
