How far in advance should you sign your new offer letter before putting in your two weeks if the start date is 5 weeks + out?

never give your two weeks without first passing all background checks with the new potential employer. It could be a disaster as anything could come up, get your offer rescinded and then you are without a job… this is probably more important than the original question 😆

Plus the whole economy thing

If you've a due by date to sign it, then respect that date. Let your company know the date you intend to separate I.e your last day

I think most places will say you have to sign by a certain date so check your offer letter first. Otherwise it really doesn’t matter it’s up to you

I sign as soon as I’m positive that I’m taking the job

Has anybody made the transition from big law to government? If so, how did you approach tour student loans?

I have a lot of debt and have been on the standard repayment plan for 3 years but I want to become an AUSA and leave big law. I won’t be able to afford standard repayment but I’m scared about being locked into 10 years of public service if I apply for PSLF. Any insight would be great!

At my 1st industry job. Another analyst starting the same time as I is annoying the heck out of me.

He even stalks my calendar and compares the schedule overlap with our manager’s to figure out my meetings and schedule🙃. He also pushed me under the bus (he didn’t do a task even though i reminded him, yet he said I didn’t do it either together). Just here to vent
