If I have to stay in my role for another 2 months before I can move, is there any point in applying to jobs right now?

Yeah definitely. Between hearing back interview and offer it would take like a minimum of 4 weeks. Most likely 6 week. At that point 2 weeks notice is 2 months. You could always extend a tiny bit if truly needed. Why do you feel like you need to stay for 2 more months?

Then 100% interview now. Tell them that’s your timeline and they’ll be fine with it.

In this exact same boat - have to hang on until end of November. Started applying and reaching out ferociously this month. Some companies can take 4-6 months in hiring process.

I am struggling with the fact that I have 13 years of HR experience in one capacity or another, along with a bachelors degree and my PHR designation yet companies say “I’m not qualified or they ghost me when I apply for HR openings.
