Just secured an exit last week after 2 years in consulting. No more powerpoint juice!
I understand that the background check can take some time, and I'd like to keep my exit on the down low until a week or two before I leave.
The new firm is looking for references, and I'd have to list down HR's contact when they run the background check. I'm worried that this will affect my staffing as there's still a couple of months to go before I leave.
Will HR know that I'm looking to leave - as in what will appear in the background check? And how should I approach this?
