is it okay to ask for one day off for my sister’s grad ceremony?
Yes, but it’s still important how you do it. Inform your primary contact at the firm (likely recruiting) that you have a potential conflict on the date of her graduation, and ask if that would conflict with any firm events. If not, just let them know of the family event, and they’ll likely be fine with it. If they have some big event on that day, consider whether you should miss that thing (not saying you should or shouldn’t, but sometimes even social events at firms can be low-key a big deal for summers), and if you’re sure you need to miss, just ask how you make it work. They should give you some guidance on how to proceed.
thank you, but I actually figured it out! gonna miss the ceremony but visit over the weekend so I can actually spend some time. do firms ever have events on the weekends?
