I had a second round interview for an industry job this week and it went well. I am hopeful I might get an offer from them. However, i am currently starting a large client audit starting next week and I’m the only senior on the job. Do you think it would be bad to leave as this new client is starting?

This is the question everyone asks over and over.

You owe the company no more than 2 weeks' notice.

It will always be a small inconvenience when someone quits, but they will always find someone else to do the work.

Follow through, tell them where things stand. Communicate status constantly during the two week period.

True, the main thing is I feel obligated to the people on the team and would feel guilty if I left during the beginning of the audit but you’re right that I don’t really owe anyone anything!

Only you will look out for you.

Business is business! You’re employed at will, do what’s best for you, provide your 2 weeks’ notice and don’t look back. At the end of the day, the audit always gets done!

No worries. Hope you get the offer. I placed my notice this week although technically it's busy season. My tax group has year around busy season. Management knows that people are leaving all the time so they are very supportive. Just do 2 weeks. Good luck.

How do you handle these types of issues, especially when it’s CEO, VP, and Directors owning the roadmap and you are the executer?
