I work in the software industry in India. I am planning on looking for new jobs after April. The notice period at my current job is 2 months. However, from my experience, most employers wait for a maximum of one month, and sometimes just 1 or 2 weeks.
Most of the time, an employer will hire new employees because of new projects or because the current employees cannot handle the workload. So, they expect the new employee to join the company within 1 or 2 weeks.
Since my notice period is 2 months, I was wondering if I should unofficially (verbally) tell my current employer that "I am going to look for a new job". However, from previous questions on this site, this is a very bad idea.
How can I discuss this with my boss without getting into trouble?
