A Word of Caution

People sometimes quit their jobs before they've found a new position, to devote themselves fully to their job search. In this economy, one word:


Don't quit your job before you've found a new one. There are far too many people out there without jobs now. The number seems to be growing every day.

Many of the hiring managers I work with, all pretty Type-A, hard-driving sales professionals used to juggling 72 things at a time, can't really wrap their heads around why anyone would need to devote themselves full-time to a job search. One considers it bad "business decision." And unfortunately, it seems likely that anyone who is out of job in this economy could be so for far longer than expected.
