Hi Everyone,

Many of you know I was unemployed for a very long time due to exam prep, losing father, lockdown etc. But luckily I got the opportunity to join Wipro Gurgaon as an Analyst (fresher) in October 2022. In my team there were 20-25 colleagues, now we are only 3 left, all resigned and switched the job. I am also applying actively but all the companies are asking for immediate joining,but I can't join immediately. My notice period is 60 days, and it's non negotiable.

So I need suggestions from you guys, can I take the risk, and resign without any job offer ? Or keep looking for the job with currently working here in wipro.

I have completed 1.7 years, My salary isn't very good, that I stay here, there is not a single percent increment, appraisal done. That's why all the employees are leaving and switching to other companies.

Please clear my mind, I am in a dilemma what to do. I am now 35 years old, passed in 2020 (MBA)

I dont post much but I was recently laid off. There are not enough jobs in the market, its not about being confident about your skills. Yes skills like AI are in demand, but people want on the job experience. Its been more than 2 months for me and even interviews are hard to come by. People are not willing to hire me at my previous salary, forget about a hike. But yes I have 17 years of work exp. Life is a little easy for people who have less experience smile There are more jobs available at entry level and I am certain they can pay better than Wipro, but wait to get a job first.

@kool my advice would be never leave your current job without an offer. At least you are getting a salary to maintain yourself and its generally a norm for having 60 to 90 days notice with any company . People get the first offer , drop paper in their existing company and then try to find better opportunities as the exit period shortens  ., 

I guess you need to introspect and figure out what are the root causes that are currently stopping you from getting you the job offers or calls apart from the notice period factor

1. Is your existing job profile not very much in demand these days ?
-> Interact with your other colleauges who had left and got good hikes & see what were the profiles they got into . Understand their job profile , the skills & technical tools their new job requires and get an understanding of the company ( industry / size of co / and brand value )

->once you have interacted with your colleagues , , get an understanding what are the skills you need to have and where you stand currently. How is easy will it be to learn the skills , how did your colleagues manage getting those skills , what were they better at than you and what is it you think you can improve. 

-> if there are skills which have a proper certification course invest in them . Coursera & Linkedin Premium are available on dd for cheap buy those upskill and get certification which adds value rather than courses which are good but have no value in the market. 

2. Most rejections happen at the CV level itself . Get a professional CV template or take some CV template from a colleague which is much more professional than your current one. CVs attract attention it should be crisp , clear and must give details about the projects / skillsets you possess alongwith your certifications for that skills which make your CV stand out . Also the key words while searching jobs / how often you keep the profile updated may make a difference to how much visibility your CV is getting in the recruiters side

3.Work on your communication skills if you think you are lacking it . 

4. Stop spending time on DD rather invest in your career.

You lack thinking. You are fit where you are. If you are ambitious, competitive attend interviews and first get best offer at hand. The company wait for you. If not you are just 1 out of 100 avg. lot and remaining 20yrs ( assuming your max life cycle in IT, I still doubt) you cry about work, toxic etc topics. In my career I have seen ppl with smile and work smart and moved ahead of curve than me. I feel proud that I worked and shared a few moments with them.

Take it in positive spirit and next time post that you did good career wise. Best of luck.

Am I hard on you, yes you are 35 and posts like you are just out of college. You have not learned life lessons

@kool  - 60 days notice period is a norm these days. Also think about this, 17-22 colleagues who left, majority of them must have resigned post accepting new offer somewhere else. 

At age of 35, and being unemployed for a long time for whatever reasons, I would suggest you hold on to what you have while actively looking out for better opportunity. 

Do look within Wipro for a better opportunity in meantime. Good luck 😊

You can try asking your new company to buy out notice period and you can join immediately

Since many have left, you have the opportunity. Directly connect with your senior and let them know that you are not satisfied with current pay (give some good points about you) and ask them if they can consider a raise. In case they don't consider, you can later on tell them you had informed and now you got a good opportunity and hence, leaving. Switch only after getting a good job and start giving interviews.

Keep continuity ... Dont risk resigning without a job in hand @ 35... Unless you are financially strong.. My personal view

My 20-22 friends resigned because there is no APPRAISAL, No increment, if you will ask for leave they will make excuses that there is no bandwidth/ no workforce etc. and if you are hard working compare to other employee, they will give you more task to do, and average wont get any extra task, still salary is same to all of them. So, because of all these politics & toxic culture, everyone is resigning after completion of 1 year. Currently every week one employee is resigning. And they have already hired bulk graduate freshers who are on the bench, ek ja rha toh doosra aa bhi rha.

Is there any provision to take back resignation in org or in exit portal?

If yes, you can take chance for resignation

If you are confident of your skills and getting decent offers right now also, you can resign now and will get offers in next 2 months as well(unless market changes drastically in 2 mons)?

Get a job first and then resign, why they hurry unless you are throttled to the limit at work and barely find time to prepare for interviews.

Not an easy market this year to score a stable job with little uncertainties. Spend time on weekends and post office hours on weekdays to prepare well. Get a job and then resign.

There are few companies that are accepting 60 days notice period but they have stopped hiring this year. Vacancy might come from such companies that can accept 60 days NP. But I am stuck with this ENTRY LEVEL SALARY from October 2022 to Present.

I had no experience That's why I joined this Wipro for an experience letter so I can put in the CV. But slowly time passed and it's been 1 year and 8 months. The previous employee worked for 2-2.5 years and they got ₹1000-2000 only as an increment. Thats why I am thinking to take the risk. 🥶 expressionless

I don't want to be Pessimistic. But I have taken a similar step back in Nov, 2021. 

I failed to get a job within notice period of 90 days. I took a break. 

Now it's been nearly 3 years I am jobless.

Now I feel extreme anxious. I am 27 now. 

So be extremely careful!

3 years is a long time in a professional life bro. I hope you have been utilising this time by pursuing some courses and adding to your skill or gaining experience by freelancing. It'd be difficult to explain to your potential employer what have you been doing since you were laid off.

Many company are looking for immediate joining or will maximum allow 30 days period.

So in my opinion you will have to take risk for switching job.

Think pros and cons of your current situation and then make decision.

Most companies are ok with notice period as that's a standard. Finding job will also depend on your expectation i.e. open to work 24*7, location preference etc.

I will suggest stay calm and apply using Naukri, Linkedin etc (Follow some Companies etc. on Linkedin so that you get notifications on job openings)..In meantime try to upskill yourself from  online learnings (Youtube is a good place to learn).

Hold on bro... Thats not the age to take risks in career especially when you are a fresher.

Keep looking for better offers and let them know that they have 60 days of notice period.

If other company finds you worth then the won't even care for 60 days notice period and ask you to resign there. They wont ask for Experience letter etc.

Try to sharp your skills a bit. When they found something good...they will compromise for you.

Dont stop applying seeing notice period time.. just keep applying and you will be there.


No matter the situation. ..Market always need hard working and sincere people and you have to prove your worth.

@kool Since you have just started your career, do not take risks at the moment. Establish your career first for atleast 5 years and create a corpus (emergency fund) with funds equivalent to atleast 6 months salary. 

So don't quit the current job without having an offer letter from another employer.
