Has anyone ever given more than 2 weeks notice at the senior level? From conversations with my peers, it sounds like 75% are interviewing currently with the goal to transition before busy season. I just want to put my team in a decent position to replace me before this potential mass exodus of seniors from my group.
I have been working at the same small firm for almost 9 years. If I were to interview elsewhere and reach the offer stage, I don't know what I can do about providing references. I wouldn't be able to share that I'm interviewing with my manager or even my peers. At my previous company, I was in a much more JR role - and I didn't have a tight relationship with my manager. Any suggestions - thoughts? Thank you so much!

High performer laid off from D strategy. Need recommendations for good open exit opportunities for Corporate strategy roles
Parents turn 70 next year. I’m trying to figure out what to expect, how to prepare for retirement, etc. Any suggestions? Feeling overwhelmed, not sure where to start. They live in India while I’m in Canada and no chance of bringing them over right away ( will take 3 years or so, based on visa timelines). They are mobile right now but we had a bad scare where dad was hospitalized overnight and I can see that they need someone for these once a year events ( which will probably get more frequent).

Trying to exit into FAANG but know it may be a long shot involving a handful of rejections. Meanwhile got approached by a number of recruiters for a) smaller emerging startup <but need to shift geo>, and b) major banks for in-house strategy. I’ll proceed with interviews with a) since it will give me a flavour of tech recruiting, but should I even go through with interview process for b)? Thoughts? Fyi, have not interviewed in 4+ years!
Hi folks! I’m currently a PM intern at a big Chicago agency but I’m looking to transfer into strategy. I don’t think I will be getting an offer from my current agency as it seems they are focusing on hiring more senior level management. Is anyone hiring or does anyone have any leads/ someone who could refer me for a junior position? It would be much appreciated as a fresh grad. Thanks!! 🤠
I recently posted about moving to Antigua and Barbuda to live and work remotely on the digital nomad visa. Several people expressed interest in how I'm doing it, so I created an instagram. I'm documenting the steps of emigrating including pet import licenses, enrolling kids in an international school, cooking local food, and assimilating to life in the Caribbean. For those who are interested, check me out at: https://www.instagram.com/webelongbythesea/
