Thought of resigning without having any offer because of 90 days notice period.

Can I say my manager the truth or can I lie that I have an offer? (I feel little low to say I dont have any offer)

Hey Never tell your manager that you don’t have any offer. I tried to do the same while working at a startup. The HR was unhappy with the resignation and decided to teach me a lesson. She told me not to come from next day and asked me not to serve notice. Don’t tell that to your manager, you’d end up jobless. Resigning without an offer implies that you hate the company and work culture which might not go well with the HR. Also note that if you decide to accept retention offer then you’d be asked to produce offer letter.



I would say wait till Jan to resign


Hiring is slowdown. And from Jan, new quarter will start. So hiring will start.
Nov-dec is the worse time because people are not available to take interviews and plus currently everything is uncertain by the time new year arrive, we will have a clear picture.


Or else you can say I have an offer letter. Probably they won't ask you to prove, if they are asking then let me know.. i will forward my offer letter salary break-up...😂😂


Go ahead and resign. I have always found a job after doing so. The manager won't come asking immediately for the reason, but if he/she comes tell your point straight forward. And when you get an offer, you can let them know if they are interested to retain you. Don't fake things I would say.


Bhai ruk ja atleast by march tak till then each department in company will get funding of recession


Never resign without a job offer in hand.

With recession news, have 2 offers in hand


Wait 2 months then resign


If you have a job offer in hand, then think about resignation. Without a job offer, don't think about resigning. The situation without a job would be more terrible. If you don't have any dependencies on your monthly income if you have a 6-month emergency fund which means 6*(your monthly income), if you don't have any plan B. Then go for resignation.

Just a question for those here. What does anyone see as a job outlook for a pharmacy technician that has 15 years of experience and is studying for the CPhT? I would like to return to 100% remote work and, understandably, most job postings that are about my caliber are requiring the cert. I am thinking of possibly pivoting into an IT job that would be fully remote later on down the road, but I’m interested in seeing what is possible now (and an average pay) for someone with my experience.

Hey! I’ve spent the last 4 years working on the “product team” for a large toxic corporation. I want to gauge if my scenario is unique or if this is how other companies operate PMs/POs/SMs before I rage quit and go somewhere else. I am a product owner and scrum master for 3 agile teams. It’s been this way for years. I make $95k. I am literally the only scrum master in the company and 1 of 2 product owners. There is also no product management team so I assume a lot of those duties as well. Help!

Cisco is at the top of my list because of their reputation, the good reviews from employees, and for their efforts in social good.

I currently work as a database admin at a homeless youth shelter in LA, and Cisco is our most generous donor. I'm finishing up my bootcamp and would love to hear if Cisco is a good place for me to try joining.

In ELSS mutual the total we can save save tax is 1.5lakh. Do we need to invest yearly 1.5 lakh yearly to save tax? I am planning to have a Sip of 5000 monthly for 3 years. So total money invested in 3 years will be around 60000 * 3 = 180000.
Will that be sufficient to save tax or Do I need to have a sip of 12000 per month to save tax.
