Interviewing at Google India. At what point should I resign from my current job?

In the process of interviewing at Google India. Got through the on-site interviews, had a very decent talk with a Hiring Manager.

My HR asked me for tons of info for the Hiring Committee (including joining date and notice period) and I'm on my way to the Hiring Committee this week!

I'm expected to get an answer (hire / reject) by the coming Monday (11th). At what point should I feel safe leaving my current job, provided I'm hired?

I have a couple of family occasions in December. Looking to take the month as time off. I assume after the hire / nohire decision, it'll take about 2-3 more weeks to finalise an offer. My notice is 1 month.

TC: 28 Lakhs. YOE: 3

      That's pretty shitty. Report him and improve the culture when you join the company :)

      Yep. I was kinda waiting for the end of my process (I don't want to add any bias or seem negative, because all of the other interviewers were delightful)

      Thanks for the good comment. Let's hope I make it through! :)

    When you have an offer letter in hand and have accepted.

      @Mznznn I only found out about levels after the interviews. Though I was applying for a position that required 4+ YOE. So I guess it's fine. Just asked my recruiter.

      I come from a startup / mid-sized company background, so I didn't know these things. Thanks for your comment!

      G is pretty chill. Don't resign unless you have comp details. They won't force you to join ASAP. You can give any realistic joining date and that should be fine.

    Don’t resign till you have the offer letter in hand, accept the offer and confirm with the G HR/ recruiter about your joining, etc.
    Never. Before. That.

    It's better to wait until the background check finishes I would say. You never know what can pop up.

      Sorry, I don't want to disclose. It's a startup with very few team members. And it would be pretty obvious from my English and posting style, if they ever find this post 😅
