Hey guys, I am in a dilemma right now and I am hoping to hear your take on my situation. I just started a marketing-related job. It's a small setup backed by some VCs in developing platforms for the travel industry. And for context, it was referred by a friend of mine. And then I just received another job offer - it's a comms role in a cryptocurrency trading platform (think along the lines of Binance). Should I burn the bridge and take up the new job offer? How to explain my sudden departure?

Take the job that will best suit you and your future financial and personal objectives. Dont worry about the company. When a company needs to let staff go, they dont hesitate! Best of luck!

It depends. How much do you love/care about the comms job? If enough, then move on (be nice about it and tell your boss/team about why you’re making this change) and don’t list the marketing role in your experience if it’s just been a few weeks or a couple of months. And I’d recommend sticking at that Comms role a fair bit before considering moving again, to avoid your profile from having many visible gaps and frequent jumps.

Never got a Zoom link, figured it would show up Monday morning. At 9:01 AM on Monday, we get an email saying, among other things, “Defense counsel has not appeared for trial.” Then, another email came immediately after that, with a Zoom link included. It’s just me and the paralegal in the office at this point.
