Q: I am a junior associate who is contemplating leaving my current firm for greener pastures. I need to formally accept my “greener” opportunity soon, but I would not start until three months from now. Should I give notice to my current firm now, or should I wait until closer to the time I would (ideally) be departing? I have no concern about the security of the future position.

Dear Greener: Congratulations on your job offer! In this very tight job market, combined with the fact that you are a junior associate, you have accomplished several great feats — staying employed while at the same time finding a new and better job.
