    Ha. It's a matter of overselling more than anything else. Whenever a prospective employer asks you what you make, automatically inflate the figure by a reasonable amount (If you make $35k, say you make $40k or so, etc.). Since white collar companies also understand that it usually takes a raise over the baseline to entice new employees to sign on, you create a significant margin right off the bat. In the consulting industry, for instance, the standard is at least 20% above current salary to get a new employee. In other industries, it's less, if anything. If you inflate your salary reasonably, even if you sign on for "no additional money", you're still looking at a raise.
    Sounds like good times, maybe I should have finished college instead of drinking.......

    Oh well nothing wrong with working in a factory, that is if I get the job.

      If you work hard and are honest, there is no shame in doing anything, IMO.

        I've made a lot of mistakes and foolish decisions in my life, at this point all I can do is work hard to try and salvage something for myself.

              Whatever, you do e-mail and phone calls would be a way too informal way of resigning from a job, doing that leaves a bad taste in your former employer's mouth. I would wait a week myself.

                eh, i wouldn't be the guy to ask about leaving a company on good terms. i say; do what's best for you. they wouldn't give you 2 weeks notice if they fired your ass.

                    Why, because we're all "working stiffs"?
                    Desk jobs aren't that bad.

Seeing as the money will be a 25-40&#37; pay increase, it's in my best interest financially to make the move sooner. I also have 4 weeks of vacation saved here that I will get compensated for when I leave. Fact remains that I don't have a written offer yet, so I'm getting a bit ahead of myself.
                      The new employer should understand that you need to give your existing employer at least 2 weeks notice. I've had some potential employers complain about that, but my response is that if the situations were reversed you would expect at least 2 weeks notice before an employee left.

                      With my company they don't even accept a 2 week notice from top level employees, if a senior guys gives notice they shake his hand, cut his checks for vacation and the two weeks, and show him the door. Your with us or against us kind of thing.

                        That was never my intent. No matter when I go forward with my resignation, I will be brought in to discuss the matter with the President. I think it is best to probably wait. As of right now, I don't have a formal offer, so it may very well be a non-issue. I can easily wait until Tuesday or later next week.

                          I don't think the start date (whatever I happen to pick) will be much of an issue. Ideally, I'd like a week off to relax before starting the new job, but that might not really be possible. A lot of this depends on the timing of the formal offer and how long it takes to negotiate bonuses, title, start date, and salary. Your point is a good one.

                          I don't think my current employer would ask me to leave before my requested notice date. We're currently short-staffed, and I'm staying on to finish several projects that I want to complete before my tenure is over.

                              Ha. Why waste my time off (that I get paid for) and money (which I can always use for other stuff) to spend time with my boss, who I basically don't want to work for anymore?
