Maximize Your 2024 Vacation Days With This TikToker's Tips
TikTok user @flowerpowerxoxo0 suggested a clever hack to maximize your limited PTO days by aligning them with federal holidays you already get time off for.
For instance, in 2024, Memorial Day is on May 27th. By strategically booking your PTO from May 28th to 31st, you can snag a total of nine days off.
With this nifty workaround, you won't have to relegate to a micro-cation just hours away from the city but instead indulge in a well-deserved, extended break far away.
This hack is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Employer policies on PTO vary significantly, and the trick may not work for people in industries where weekend duties are a norm.
Depending on your company's rules, it may be better to put in your request sooner rather than later to improve your chances of getting it greenlit.
