The New York Times – The Best Time to Ask For a Sabbatical Could Be Now

New York Times logoIN these scary economic times, most people are hunkering down in their jobs like soldiers in foxholes, trying to stay out of the line of fire. Concerns about work — is it fulfilling, is it meaningful, do I like it? — can seem almost frivolous.

And asking for anything — raises, different hours, a better chair — seems fraught with danger. Am I being too demanding? Can they find someone willing to work longer for less (and put up with the old chair)?

So the idea of asking to leave work for a month, let alone six or nine months, for a sabbatical or a fellowship, seems almost ludicrous — an indulgence, like the three-martini lunch, that belongs to another lifetime.
