Question 1: I am currently employed by a Fortune 100 company and considering resigning to take on a career development opportunity at another company in the same area. When resigning should I say where I am going to my co-workers? The Short Answer is “My new employer asked me to wait.” The best response is “My new employer asked me to wait to tell people about my new job until I start it.” Would those same rules apply to independent contractors?
