I've been on the bench for a few weeks now and also having final round interviews with other firms. Do I not accept new projects knowing that I'm very close to leaving? Don't want to burn bridges.

You should keep it business as usual until you sign that offer letter. I'm sure you are a badass but you never know what can happen in final rounds.

Take on shorter projects or non stretch roles, or help with a longer term BD effort on a big deal that won't close soon. Frankly, I'd prefer it if you told me you were taking on a chunk of PTO or something. I've had team members bail mid-project and it blows.

Thinking of leaving too. Where'd you go?

Take role. No one will remember after you leave just make sure to give proper notice

A3, it does blow. I understand PTO but you would want them to tell you if they are actively applying to other jobs?

Yes please be open about it. I had someone join the project...then week one told me he was leaving within a month :(

Where you going OP? Take me with brah

Thanks all for the replies. Will keep it BAU for now

When negotiating offers, say I have an offer letter in hand from Company A.
During another interview, the recruiter from Company B asks for the package offered by A. I tell them and they later ask me to send the offer letter for proof. Is it okay to send the offer letter of Company A to Company B? Do I need to censor/redact some things from the offer letter before sending it?

Looking for advice: I’m having an informal interview lunch tomorrow with two partners and a friend that also works for that firm. My friend told me she can guarantee they will all be in jeans and a casual shirt since it’s Friday and it would probably look weird if I wore a suit. I was all for wearing a nice shirt and jeans but now I’m overthinking it as it is still an interview— even if it is informal. Do you think I’m good with jeans or should I just put some slacks on?

Accepted an offer with Company A almost a month ago.  Start date is 6/20.  Meanwhile, I've interviewed with Company B and been told by HR that an offer is coming on Tuesday.  Company B is preferred. I've always been told that you sign the offer get the drug screen results before giving notice. However, I don't want to start with Company A and then give notice after a week or two. Just seems like a crappy thing to do.
