Applying While Out of Town

I'm currently out of town, but am still browsing job ads online.  I won't be back home for another month.  Should I still apply for jobs, and if so, should I tell the employer I'm away and what date I expect to be back?

My current (temp) job is ending in a week. I have the good fortune of having enough saved up that I don’t need to worry for several months, and I’d been hoping to take 2-4 weeks to travel and unwind. My trouble is, I haven’t found a new job yet, and I’m getting scared that if a good opportunity comes up while I’m away, I won’t be available for an interview. This area isn’t lacking for jobs, but it is lacking for ones that I’d be a great fit for and could build a career out of.I still haven’t scheduled flights or anything since I’m not sure what to do. Should I line up a job before vacationing? Can I apply, leave, and then let any callbacks know I’ll be back in a couple of weeks? Should I mention in a cover letter that I’m out? Do companies generally toss your resume once they find out you can’t interview for a while? Or should I just enjoy myself and deal with job hunting afterward?

Intially when you start a nw job no will give you this much of access of having leaves, still speak to your boss, if they can really help you.

You can tell them only after there is a positive response to your original application.

You should definitely carry on applying, and mention wherever it is required that you would be physically present only after a certain date.
