Ok. My target relocation month is August. I am planning on starting applying for jobs (through a variety of methods) within the first week of April. Worst case scenario Ė if I havenít found a job in D. by July, Iíll use a temp agency or something similar.
I want to tell my boss next week so that I can list him as a reference and obtain a reference letter from him. I would really like to enclose his recommendation letter with the resume packets Iíll be sending (as a follow up to emailing my resume and cover letters for positions I have found online).
Things to consider:
1. I am willing to stay for as long as I can because I have bills to pay and projects to finish Ė itís obvious that it will take a couple of months to find a job. I am in a position where I am pretty much needed on a daily basis and they canít let me go without finding a replacement first. You never know, though.
2. At the same time I want to be able to accept a position if I am offered one earlier that expected
3. I dread a scenario where I am quickly replaced and jobless until my actual relocation (itís easier to find a job while having a job).
4. I dread a scenario where I go to D, without having secured a job.
Anyway, I am open to your suggestions regarding this. Not sure how to approach boss and what to tell him, especially regarding my target ďleave dateĒ. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. Hope my ramblings make sense.
