I often feel that there is a stigma when someone leaves a job at a non-traditional time. Have you observed this? I don’t believe it is meant to happen (or maybe it is), but I have seen when professionals search for a job outside of the traditional #SAsearch season there seems to be this erie hush that falls over conversations about searching at that time. However, many of us are at-will employees, meaning we are not bound to work certain time commitments – we are free to go as we wish (obviously there is another side of that). So I ask this week would you take a new job in the middle of the academic year?
