This question already has an answer here:
I am about to begin applying for a new job. My only employment in the software industry is the several years I've spent with my current employer. I hear often on here that you should have the next job lined up before resigning. I'm not sure if my situation is an exception to that rule.
I have a great relationship with my current employer.
I believe my current company would be a very strong reference.
I'd like to ask my employer what details of my job duties I am allowed to put on my resume.
I think they may allow me to work while I search for my next job.
I work in a high demand industry.
I have money saved to handle a few months of unemployment if need be.
Am I being naive? What are some additional things I should consider when thinking of resigning before having my next job lined up?
