Yup Also turn down roles saying you just rolled off a high burn project and need to cool your heels to sustain yourself for the long term

Same. I’m flying so far under the radar I might crash

Do you mean book PTO every other week for the entire week? Wouldn’t that exhaust your PTO?

I'm guessing s/he means forecasting PTO in Staffit and then changing it out to BD closer to the day.

If you project ends right around when you turn in 2 week notice, will most company let you go immediately or honor your 2 weeks? Those 2 weeks will just be bench weeks then. (I’m Not going to a competitor).

I rolled off a project 3 months ago. They keep reaching out and asking me to help onboard new teammates to give them historical knowledge (it’s a long-term project). Do I have to keep doing this? Or does it get to a point where I can say I don’t have the time and there must be someone more recent who can help?
