What if I have another job lined up?

Of course, all of this advice may be irrelevant if you’ve already landed yourself another job. But that doesn’t mean you should proceed in haste.

DeZube warns that when you switch jobs, you might be taking a risk because you may not be as valuable to your new employer.

“Right now there’s a large supply of unemployed people, but not a large supply of open positions. You need to be more careful because you’re an unknown quantity at a new job.”

And likewise, a new company is an unknown quantity to you.

“You should also make sure that your new company is financially sound before jumping ship,” she says.
