I just got a phenomenal job offer which I accepted. But I need to give notice. My future employer has been very understanding knowing as an accountant that it is year end and I need to help my employer get things prepared so they are letting me have 4 weeks before I start. I want to give notice so that my current employer has plenty of time but everyone keeps telling me to not give notice till my background check comes back. I know there is nothing in my background that is bad. Should I keep waiting?
I really like my current job and boss but this opportunity is so good I couldn't pass it up. I want to do right by my current boss while protecting myself. I would love to hear from the community your experiences and thoughts. I just find it so crazy right now for the next two weeks with the holidays thrown in there.
