Really, I just need to ensure money is coming in consistently with no gaps. My two weeks will be in before my end of year review, thank goodness.This isn't feasible to pull off in reality in a lot of cases.
I can absolutely overlap jobs for a bit. I can pull that off due to my remote status. But I couldn’t do that long term because of secret clearance issues.
What’s probably realistic is quitting J1 a few days into J2 so there’s no money drought. While ensuring that I’ve quit before my end of year review. I won’t be going to that, he’d tear me into confetti in it.
That being said, my current boss has given me many second chances and even gave me a full 2 weeks to train while telling me he wanted me on the team. I won’t lie, I feel a bit bad quitting especially since I like the team, but I’d be a fool to give up a job paying me $120K for a job making $75K. Like you said, job jumping is the way to go.
