Setting up an out of office auto-reply for your email is pretty common practice, especially for work. But be mindful of how much you divulge when you write it. Saying that you’re leaving the country and for how long advertises that your home will be empty. Keep it simple and vague, saying that you’re currently not available and will reply when you return. Some employers have a set format or template they like you to follow but feel confident to question it if you think it’s giving away too much information.
