Tried to roll off but couldn't 😒..

Me too...scary!

Currently in the same situation, I’m less than a month into this project, and the role I wanted reached out, and I had to turn it away! 😞 I hate my current project in which I’m on till September? Best way or advice how to roll off earlier?

Depends on your clout/leverage within the company. Threatening to quit if they don't roll you off can be very effective, but only if you're actually valuable to the firm (NOT a new analyst, for example)...

I’ve been asking about new opportunities in my current role for a year. Nothing came along so I started looking and I got an offer for a new role today. So of course my current place gives me a great opportunity right as I’m negotiating and figuring out salary for the new role. Figures this happens. 😞

Hello guys,

Please help.

Recently, a month back I made a switch to a product based company/startup. For a month, I was getting to know their one of the product having tech stack as Java & Aws. Now after a month, I am being put in a new product completely based on golang & temporal.

My total exp is 3.8 years, since I have already spent 3.8 of my life in Java stack, would that be good for me if I make a switch to some other language or tech stack? I see, there are very few position for go.
