Should I quit my job

Daimler schnauzer
Nov 16 24 Comments

I know how to do my job but I feel mentally wiped out and cannot put in my 100%. I keep zoning out and try to drag my attention back to what is happening around me. I have momentum. I have leetcoded enough to be called onsite for FAANG interviews. One did not make an offer. I am waiting for the other. Should I just quit and focus on my job search? YOE 10 yrs. TC 220k. H1B visa with approved I140

    You may not be giving 100% but they are still giving you 100% of your pay. Stick with it

    Also, there are other companies around, it’s not just FAANG.

      I doubt if Software Engineers code in Apex at Salesforce.

    You’ll go out of status if you are unemployed for 3 months.
    Have you thought through that?

      Yes. I would be worried if my resume, sales pitch and leetcode game were not on point. I feel fairly confident I will land myself something

      Then you just gotta grind it out. Life is a marathon. Every job isn’t a walk in the park. Sometimes everything happens for a reason. Gotta have patience and maybe take a step back before moving forward. Maybe consider working as an contractor in another country if you’re tired of being tied down to jobs with work visa.

      Why take a step back? This job was a step back

    Don't quit until you have one or more job offers that you'd be happy to accept. You are in a stronger negotiating position with potential new employers if you are currently employed.

      But that can happen with multiple offers as well yes?

      Are you confident that you can get multiple offers within a timeframe that allows you to play them off each other? Offers that you _can_ play off each other? If so.... go for it.
