You’re probably too expensive for the positions they’re currently looking to fill. What’s your target salary/rate? What roles are you looking at?

Planning to switch companies but I'm currently in a consulting position on the bench. I'm worried if I give 2 weeks notice that I'll be let go immediately since I have nothing to transition, but I also don't want to screw over my current company by getting assigned to a project then leaving without notice. Am I just paranoid?

Recently started a new gig (less than three months). Team is great but client is a nightmare, deadlines and workload are insane and unforgiving and the type of work is a dead end road creatively. Another recruiter reached out with a role that is closer to the kind of work I want to be doing - is it awful to jump ship so soon? The agency is great but in remote mode I don’t have any interactions outside my team. Recruiting agency is newer and less established. Advice?
