Today something very coincidental and dramatic happened -- I scheduled a meeting with my boss to let him know that I will be quitting my job. When I showed up to the zoom meeting, I noticed that the HR person was also there and soon they announced that they could no longer hire me as the funding for my project is discontinued. Today is my last day of work and I will receive severance pay for a month.
As for my new role, I negotiated a late start date (three weeks from now) as I told the recruiter that I would need time to give a two weeks' notice and wrap up my work. Now I realize I can literally start working for them as soon as tomorrow.
Would it be okay for me to email the recruiter and inform her that I can start earlier on next Monday or the Monday after next (which she offered but I postponed)?
Thank you so much for reading this!! It's like a movie script happening in real life.
