Be sincere. Thank those who deserve thanking, and those who don’t, work hard and wrap up what you can, and ask how you can help.

Echoing what the CD said, thank the people who helped you get to where you are at your current gig. Be respectful (but go fuckin nuts on the inside...you’re outa there!)

And don’t completely check out. If you still have a couple weeks, act like you still care and work “semi-hard."

Going thru this now. 2 days til I leave and staying motivated is NOT EASY. However, dont burn bridges. Make sure you leave on good terms with as many people as possible. You will certainly meet them, work with them or need their referral in the future.

When in doubt, don't be an asshole.

Good luck and congrats on the new gig!

Ensure you take time off and reflect on how to truly fulfill the dream job - find meaning in the work. If you come in the new role with that clarity, you’ll be able to articulate your vision to get the most meaningful work out of that job!

Good luck telling Nancy 😘

How does one who has no idea about data structures or algorithms start preparing for Google interview? I'm a Salesforce developer and I'll have a round on data structures and algo. What are some resources that I can use to prepare?

I can use leetcode to get the questions but before I start on leet, how do I learn about data structures?
