Disclose at the interview that you have paid for vacation plans. I started a new job last month and I negotiated that before hire. You can do it!
good luck on the new job AND time off! Hope to see you on the playa!



Yep. It's Labor Day. Most businesses are slow. Just be super polite and nice about it: I'm really excited about this opportunity. I should tell you that I have paid for a vacation the week before labor day, but if it is a dealbreaker, I can see what I can do about getting refunds.

That's a tough one.

I did once start a job late because of Burning Man--I simply admitted I'd made plans, and asked if there was any possibility of attending part or all of it, and they were very nice about it. If you come to them from a standpoint of being willing to cancel, many times an employer is happy for the chance to look generous.

(If they had been conservative I would have painted my vacation as a "family reunion". Luckily, this didn't happen.)

Then again, it wasn't hard to get a ticket then, and I could've sold my ticket if I'd had to. STEP tickets are unfortunately not sellable after the August 7th deadline.

Ultimately it's a very personal decision.

Last year, I started my new job the Monday after burning man. Luckily, I was about the negotiate my start date without having to tell them why.
You are the best judge about the new company and new boss. It's sad but, you got to do what you got to do, to be financially stable and love your life beyond burning man. My personal opinion is that comes first. I think by thursday you will have more clarity and more information to make decisions. Good luck with the new job!

Did you sort it out? From previous posts of people having the same issue, the way to resolve it was to fully restart the browser program on whatever device you are using... Perhaps even restart the device itself. And then click the link again.

Since you posted over 3 hours ago, I hope you've figured it out. But if you hav'nt, I had the same problem. Restarted several times and tried two different machines to no avail.

The STEP customer support page says you can also wait 35 minutes and try again when you receive that message, if it has not been 72 hours since the email was sent.
That worked for me.

Copper, I had that problem and just had to make sure all browsers were closed and retry after a few minutes then bingo.

Unless the 72 hours has expired?

four20ps,

I would buy the tickets (you have until 8/7/12 to sell back into STEP I believe) then as others have said you may have more clarity by 8/7. if you can go you have tickets, if not, simple to sell back! Good luck :)

Haven't replied yet either so I hope I am doing this correctly but... Thank you. Good luck to you as well. I wonder how long a 6 second difference in time stamp will take in default time?

with the difference so small, you might even be in front of someone 6 seconds ahead of you.... the almighty timestamp keeps us guessing at least a little bit...
