What does being staffed on a project have to do with accepting a new job? “Got an offer but I’m currently employed elsewhere” 😑

likehelpfulfunny

Was worried about project transition.

I just signed my offer and put in my two weeks while staffed. I informed my project manager and we identified a backfill and put together a transition plan. No hard feelings on either side.

Key is to be professional. If you intend on leaving then give two weeks and work on a transition plan. If the recruiter moved too fast then feel free to pass on the offer, you have gainful employment and there are always other opportunities out there. Don’t let recruiters push you around. Best of luck!

like

Question is why you have an offer. Answer is you intend to quit. So quit! Or maybe you want to think twice about the offer. Please do not bring the offer back to current firm and hold your current employer hostage.

I was reached out by a recruiter months ago and was just curious about what available out there in the market. Did not expect them to bring me to that position given all the uncertainties due to COVID19...

+1 with A1 unless the company is a lot smaller than Guidehouse just create a plan to transition from your role on the project and go to the other company. Personally with all the uncertainty I would ensure that the new company was as stable as possible and there was no chance they would rescind or postpone. Congrats on the offer!

Thank you for your kind words!

I got hired as a freelancer on a project. 2 days in and we’re off to a slow start getting access to what I need. It’s paid hourly.

My question is do I bill the full day even though I only put in a few hours of kick off calls and contacting folks to get access to the things I need? It’s not my fault they were disorganized.
