Anyone quit without a job lined up? Very deflated from the job hunt, been applying for about a year without much luck. Considering taking a few months off to finish grad school. I have been part time pursuing a masters degree in computer science part time, if I go full time I can finish in May.

Yeah if you’ve got the savings just do it dude, you’ll snap up a job once you have the degree. Take the pressure off and enjoy life until then

If you have been trying for a year and not getting a job it would not be wise to leave what you have...you need experience more than the degree. You can already use the “to be done” degree to your benefit by including it in the resume and a planned completion date. Even if that is not helping you land the job it’s a clear indication you need more experience and leaving the job will be detrimental, considering your circumstances. For some yes quitting the job if they have savings and Enough experience may make sense....

Is their current job giving them experience in CS? Seems not Have they been putting a planned date on their resume? Unclear, you said that not them Is that graduation date going to be within the next year? It wasn’t when they started applying. It will be now if they go full time. Unclear if they stay part time I know you’re here to help just think it’s important to stick to what we know about the situation and not what we imagine

How do you handle attraction in the work place. During my summer internship I was really attracted to this girl I shared a office with. She was way out of my league so I didn't even attempt to ask her out or anything. Plus you don't hookup where you vlookup. During one of the days she wore a really short skirt and I got a bit aroused. Since my housing was really close, during lunch I went home and fixed the issue. How do you handle being aroused at work?

Anyone quit their job without another job lined up? Considering this option and luckily smart with savings so not an issue financially for at least a year. But curious to hear others thoughts?

For the long term I’m thinking Ameriprise would be the better option but I could always just stay at EDJ where I’m comfortable and continue growing my book. Thoughts ?
