Sooner the better.


As soon as possible. So that they can look for other options and they can give additional hike as well.

It will be better to have it as soon as possible

Agree, the only answer here is ASAP

Asap to save your time and theirs, it’s ethical to reveal as even they have to have time for replacement

Hopefully, you can give them a 2-3 week notice

Car theft is on rise in my area. I want to put safeguards in my car like gps tracker or anything that's available commercially. I heard phone companies have something that uses their cellphone towers to keep track. Any suggestions on gps trackers or other brand products. I am really worried that due to car shortage and job losses thefts are going to go up. Car dealerships are having wait times of 5-6 months for new cars so any theft would create lot of trouble for our young family.

Hello all. I received an offer from ReBIT of 15 LPA.
This is my first offer and I am bit concerned to drop my papers.
The offer letter says fixed term employment. I am concerned about some clause which also speaks of extending the employment based on time bound project completion.
I am thinking of not accepting this offer just in case if I am not able to find any other counter offers.
Please advice....
