Should We Serve Our Companies during Notice Period: Benefits to Serve Notice

Of course, we should serve our notice period as stated in the contract that agreed by both parties (you and your company). On one hand, it is our responsible to fulfill our agreement or contract. On the other hand, breaching the contract is not a good record and costs us losing our money and precious time.

For example, if you are not going to serve for a two-month notice period, then you need to compensate two months salaries. In other words, you are going to get nothing for working during the next two months. Unless your new job offers an attractive salary that is at least double from your current salary. However, we should bear in mind that there is no free lunch in this world. The amount of salary is always equavalent to the amount of workload and responsible in workplace.

The best solution is fulfill the obligation. And then, starting to seek a new job from the first day of that notice. The benefits are:
  1. Your prospective employers may feel that you are a responsible person.
  2. You also provide some sort of buffer for your previous company so that they have sufficient time to find a right person to fill in that position without affecting their daily operation significantly. Thus, the relationship between you and your ex-employer may still in a good condition.
  3. You can open to be hired, and make an annoucement to let all potential employers about this matter - you are available after two months.
  4. Having a chance to say goodbye with your closed friends or colleague. Guess what, they may also provide a farewell party for you to appreciate your contribution to the company.

Do be afraid for losing jobs for months. You can treat it as a long holiday to seriously plan your career or future. You can also use this chance to improve yourself while waiting for responses from prospective employers.
