Impress the Boss While on Vacation?

Dear Experts, In two weeks, I'm taking my first week-long vacation since starting my current job a year ago. Do you have any tips for impressing my boss while I'm on vacation? There is so much competition in my workplace right now. How can I stay in my boss's mind even when I'm 3,000 miles away? Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#463 Take your vacation for what it is: time away from work. Your boss will appreciate a well rested employee. (@gradversity) Q#463 Make sure boss knows who 2 go 2 about your projects while you're away. If you're really nervous, check in mid-week. (@juliaerickson) Q#463 Find a short article that deals with problems your organization's facing. Add your own thoughts & send before you leave. (@beneubanks) Q#463 Try to make your absence pain-free for boss. Plan for coverage & do work in advance to minimize disruption. (@jtodonnell) Q#463 Get a peer to cover for you, address all items prior to leaving and check in regularly via e-mail/phone. (@avitacareermanagement) Q#463 NOT having to cover for you best impression. Anticipate what might come up while you're gone. Have measures in place to handle.
