The reason I’m resigning essentially comes down to the fact that I’m moving across the country in less than two months, and also that the nature of the position has changed significantly in the year I’ve had the job.
When I first started working here, it was a 3 month contract for an excel job designed to be on the level of L1 helpdesk, with average L1 helpdesk pay for our area. The project deadlines kept being extended and are currently extended indefinitely. My responsibilities have increased significantly but I’m still on an L1 salary (this is non-negotiable, I’ve checked). I’ve also been postponing my cross country move for a year now, figured I’d wait until the project is over but now it’s starting to look like it’s going to be another few months.
We’re deploying tens of thousands of computers across the state. My job in all of this is easy enough so that I think anyone could do it, but it’s time sensitive so I’m not sure if they could hire someone else in the time period necessary to get it done (mid-summer is our deadline).
What’s an appropriate amount of time to give my resignation? Should 3.5 weeks be enough? Does that chance if we’re in the middle of a project?
