Two choices with job hunting

Looking for a new job?

Here are your choices:

  1. Sell yourself. Explain how you’re better than your current company. Show how poorly you were treated. Give examples of how overqualified you are.
  2. Sell your current company. Explain how great your time with them has been. Show how well they treated you. Give examples of great things your teams did.

Choice 2 gets you:

  • Higher paying opportunities.
  • More opportunities.
  • An open door to return with your current company.

Yes, a small percentage of old colleagues (ones most financially affected by your departure) will treat with you ignorance and contempt. But you get that any time you get a new job.

Might as well go with Choice 2.
