Starting a new job on January 3. Want to leave on good terms in case I want to boomerang down the road. Is it a bad move to put in my 2 weeks on December 17, right before my whole project team disconnects? Or should I at least give them a heads up before I put in 2 weeks? Do I need to tell my practice leaders/PPMDs in advance? I’m a SC fyi. Thanks fam! First time doing this.

I put in my notice 2 days ago to give 4 weeks. So far my project leadership has been appreciative and it’s been business as usual. I’d recommend giving more notice if you can especially since it’s the holiday season. The only time I wouldn’t is if you anticipate them squeezing every last drop from you before you go.

I would put in the 2 weeks in now. For my case, I liked my team and truly wanted them to be prepared for my departure and gave a one month notice.

If you think they would actually do that, why do you even care how you treat them on the way out? In seriousness, a company may walk you out immediately but they’ll still pay you out your time.

If you’re at Deloitte right now your two week notice would be Thursday. Your last day cannot be a holiday or pto. With disconnect and if you start on Jan 3 that means your last day must be Dec 23.

Yeah highly recommend that so you get fully disconnect plus your benefits will be in place from D until 1/31 and hopefully your new job starts on 2/1. Congrats on new role and best of luck!

Tech companies are mostly built up of 22ish-40ish year olds (not data, just how it feels) which makes sense as tech has been booming for only 20ish years.

Or will we have 50-60 year old SAAS sales people, project managers, etc, still in the space and about to retire?

Hi everyone, I joined EPAM Systems in India as Software Engineer. It's been already a month failed couple of internal interviews haven't got placed in a project. I'm preparing as much as I can.

Any interview tips for Project Manager roles in software development? I was moved to this role about 2 years ago and soon looking to jump to another company, but unsure of what to focus on talking about. I’ve tested the waters and the feedback from one interviewer who was generous enough to provide it was that I made myself sound like a technologist rather than a PM because I was too focused on the product and it’s details instead of the project management details.
