I’m in my last two weeks with my current employer as well. I work at a startup now (have for about 18 months) and going to another. I am actually doing quite a bit to get some stuff done and transition my work to others.

I think you mean WHO did I do? Lol

You probably got to them before they got to you. Be glad…

I'm losing my mind. I desperately want to roll off my project, I hate it, gives me anxiety. But i signed a contract about a year and half ago to buy a new build home & won't be starting the underwriting process until the home is done some time in Sep. My lender/RE Agent said I can change jobs as long as I make the same or more. I can have a one month gap between jobs. As a senior analyst, 3 YOE overall, is it too risky to quit? I can't handle it anymore & i don't think I'll be able to roll off.
