Actually leaving the company and the people i serviced
I got my dream job offer. The only catch is it doesn't start until the beginning of April. The other issue is that my company is known for immediately cutting the benefits of anyone who says that they're leaving. I love my manager and want to give him as much time as possible to find replacement, but I also can't afford to lose benefits for the next month and a half. Is there any compromise?
Two weeks notice is the norm, especially if do not wont burn a bridge. I seen it more often the employer will cut you loose after a week of your notice or maybe even the same day as you gave your notice. You need to do what's best for you and family. Bottom-line.
I quit my job last year in the medical diagnostic industry where I was global product support manager. With that company I managed a team of 7 engineers, was a regional sales support/product manager in UK, did training for customers and service engineers and did strategic marketing over a period of 18 years. Prior to that I was a medical technologist working in the clinical laboratory for 18 years. I am now trying to find a low stress job with medical benefits in Myrtle Beach, SC area but seem to be hitting dead ends every time I apply for positions here. I don't seem to be able to position myself for jobs I know I am capable of, but employers most likely think I am over qualified for or because I have no specific experience for the job. I have many talents including project management skills, organizational, leadership, writing and computer. How do I market these non medical diagnostic skills to get into a position that is not in the medical field? Any advice is helpful.
