Prefer to be on the road but hate this project. Going to roll off soon & be local. It's sort of bittersweet.

Need advice for resigning while on bench. I already have a start date with the new employer. Should I do a traditional two week notice or give <=1 week notice instead? My goal is to not burn bridges, but I also don’t want to get let go on the spot since I have nothing to “wrap up” besides HR tasks. I’ve read on here that sometimes they will let you go day of and pay you out for two weeks but I don’t see why any firm would do that for somebody not currently performing billable work...

Is there a difference of being on the beach and on the bench? My take is that you are on the beach when you roll off a project that has given you a hard time and want to relax a bit.

Resume gap: My position will be abruptly end in December (was informed this week). However, I won't be interview ready in the next 2 weeks. So how bad does a gap of 1-2 months appear to tech recruiters? Common knowledge is it is a disadvantage to the candidate from a salary negotiation process. I'm also told hiring decisions at places like AWS & GCP take time and it might be a few months before an offer letter is received.

I’m only 2-3 years into my career and I feel like f*cking toilet paper — just spent a week of my life busting ass/working OT on a reduced salary (thanks COVID, love ya 😘) “designing” PPT presentations for clients I’ve never met. I know that’s normal, but it would be nice to know the ppl who constantly tell you to “jazz it up”... I’m just really, really questioning what I’m doing in advertising. I feel like I have absolutely no point right now and it doesn’t seem like that’s going to change.

I know my coding skills are not strong enough to go an engineering route.)
