Just tell them you’d like to start in January or whenever you want to start! Hopefully they say that’s totally fine and there ya go. Everything’s negotiable. If they’re annoying about it then you have to decide if the job is good enough to be worth compromising.

My current employment has become overwhelmingly toxic since hiring a new manager. Dealing w/ daily inappropriate sexual remarks, a coworker that doesn't like to keep his hands to himself, and the manager laughs about it. I work for a well known family that is a huge influence in the local job market I'm ready to move on. Any advice on how to explain in an interview the reason why I am pursuing employment elsewhere without sounding like a liability or creating an enemy?

Any advice would be appreciated regarding networking, where to start, etc. Thank you.

I’m 5 years into my role (post under grad) and struggling to figure out what to do next. I want to job hop, and try something new, but not entirely sure what. I’m an Teams implementation consultant, and have mostly been doing implantations/Teams work for 5 years, but I don’t want to do this forever. I like the idea of UX, UX research, or some kind of SWE design work, maybe even Product Management. I’m all over the place, how did you find what you wanted to do next/start the job process?
