    Hi everyone, not sure if this is in the right forum but what I do know is I need your advice on something. I have been in my current job for three and a half years and last month handed in my notice without another job to go to, I know it's a massive risk and some would consider it stupid, I had been looking for another job for months but I was only half arsed about it, knowing how unhappy I was in general day to day life. I have a job interview coming next week, I got it through an agency in which I had my registration interview yesterday. I told them my work would require four weeks notice( only me knowing that my last day is next week). So when I have my interview next week it will be the day after my last official work day, yep i'll officially be jobless, but the company interviewing me will think I still have a job, and still would need to give four weeks notice, I would like to start immediately IF i was to get the job offered to me, but i'm not sure how to go about the whole 'yeah i told the agency four weeks but I can start whenever' stuff...
    Any idea how I can cover this with my potential new employer?
    Thanks in advance

    When they ask you the question "When are you available to start?" say "Immediately". I am not really sure why you have done what you have done. There is no shame in leaving a job with none to go to.

    The stupidity only comes in if you can't afford to cover your day-to-day expenses. But if you have savings...

    Good luck!
