I work for a consulting company (specifically with one of its clients).
My employer approved PTO for me. It starts in two weeks. Client is ok with that.
I think I will receive a job offer soon. I know I should sign a contract and only after that give notice period (it should be three weeks notice period) to my current employer.
Let's suppose I receive that job offer. Should I ask my new employer a start date further in the future explaining approved PTO and then sign that contract? This means I would need more time before starting at the new job because PTO+Notice period.
When I interviewed at the new company PTO had not been approved. They only know about the three weeks notice period.
Both companies are from US. I work remotely and I don't live in the US.
My goal is to change jobs as soon as possible without burning bridges with anyone.
