Has anyone quit without backup offer? Did you regret doing so?

I quit right before busy season started at my last firm and didn’t have any jobs lined up. Wasn’t really looking either. Took 6 months off and during that time I would lightly apply to jobs. It didn’t hurt me and I do not regret it one bit. I think if you have the means to leverage while you look for another job it’ll be ok. Otherwise, ride it out until you get an offer.


1.5 months in and no regrets so far. I'm signing a good but not great job offer and continuing to work through my existing applications.


Don't leave me 😭


Big resignation my friend

I just did!! I’m not looking for anything right now either

How do you find good Ph.D. research jobs? I have a B.S. and Ph.D. in materials and nuclear engineering respectively. I had a job before going back to grad school as front line manufacturing process engineer, but now I want more a research/characterization R&D type job. On LinkedIn and Indeed I’m only finding other front line manufacturing engineering jobs.


Recommendations for firms to look into in South FL? I'm in Ft. Lauderdale but am open to Boca or Miami. I'm a first year associate in ID (coverage issues) but really would prefer transactional work. More importantly though, I'm looking for companies who pay relatively well (doesn't necessarily have to be market), are open to remote/hybrid work, aren't sweatshops. I'd settle for insurance work if theres good WLB & $$$ lol
