Episode 19 – Gone Fishin’ – Why We Need You to Take a Vacation

More than half of American workers do not take all of their yearly allotted vacation time. The work of an enrollment manager is rewarding, but indeed exhausting and the end of the year (which is really the half-way point of the academic calendar) is a great time to reconnect with your passion for this great work you do. Thom and Brad offer up a toast to you this Holiday season and chat about how to get the most out of your time off.
