Hey ladies, has anyone quit their current role without having the next role lined up? I’m already exploring external roles and interviewing but a month off or longer between roles might be nice to combat an impending burnout. I have decent savings and I’m not financially worried. I’m wondering if there are any repercussions to exiting and re-entering the workforce within a few month window especially since I’ve hustled to make it to a Director / people leader level.
Hi Fishes, Today I was sending my payslips and form 16 to my personal email id as my lwd is just 10 days away. However, I received a mail stating the same is blocked and asked for justification. Could someone please answer whether it is legal to send the same from cognizant id to personal id. And will the IT team release my mail if I give them this justification that these are personal materials which would be required by me? Cognizant

I am so grateful today. I was laid off a few years ago and was trying to get into I-banking. I was on an h-1 visa. The market was slow, and PwC hired me instead. In consulting, I have had rapid growth and c-suite interaction. I have a Green Card now. Sometimes things work out for the best.

If you’re interviewing for a new position outside the firm and the interviewer is unavailable after your billable hours (staff augmentation project). Typically for appointments (dentist, doctor), we make up the time outside of working hours. Would you A) block off the time on your calendar as an appointment and make up the 30 min outside of normal working hours
OR B) take 30 minutes of PTO for interview
