Is it better if you look for a job when you are employed? I’m considering leaving the firm so that I can take few months off. Any suggestions on what would be the best path for this?

Do it when employed and try to take the latest start date as possible. Don’t eat your time, bill everything till you hit bare minimums.

Agreed with most. Take unpaid leave but be employed . Don’t leave unless you have a signed offer letter . Preferably once your background check is completed in the new job

Better to look while employed

I’m curious as to why unpaid leave would be better? Is it because you as a staffer don’t want to plan on having someone then they leave the next week? Or is there a benefit to the person leaving to take unpaid LOA? I feel like the poster should be allowed to be greedy as possible.

OP wouldn’t have a few months of paid leave, therefore unpaid leave and a job to potentially return to is more security than no job at all.
