I am currently working as Software Developer and I am about (or planning) to resign/leave my current employer soon. But I got some difficult situations (for me) applying for new job while employed in my current employer.
- Current employer is very strict especially about time/schedule
- Working hours 8am - 5pm
- Vacation leaves should file one month before the vacation date (whole or half day)
- Sick Leaves strictly require medical certificate
Based on my experience applying a job, it usually scheduled on weekdays and usually takes 2hrs-4hrs (or 6hrs) to complete a series of interviews and exams (depends every company). And attending interviews and exams on early morning, lunch or after work is not much feasible.
So there, it's pretty hard for me, I got no problem on my previous job applications because of the flexible working schedule in my previous employers.
My question is: How to attend interviews and exams while employed in a strict company during weekdays (8am - 5pm)?
BTW, I am planning to leave within 2 or 3 months. I just want to secure a new job before leaving my current employer.
