It's official--quitting with no new job is stupid
Life is uncertain—eat dessert first. This little sally has morphed to: Don’t quit your job without another one in sight. Haven’t we learned what a CF all this is?
If you don’t know what CF stands for—maybe you have not lived.
Our darling gurus JT O’Donnell and Dale Dauten counseled someone who was ready to leave because promised pay bumps had not come through. This will look like you were let go, they said.
Maybe this person is not a good negotiator, they added.
Get someone to tell you what you did wrong or should do right. But don’t just jump into space.
If the interviews at the new places haven’t resulted in an offer—well, think of what that could mean.
