for those who don't know, i'm about to move from jersey to boston to start grad school this fall. this means that i'm quitting my job...
i have 8 vacation days remaining here.. when people resign, there's a certain formula they use where you receive a cash compensation for unused vacation days. according to the formula, i would only receive 1 day's worth of pay since i've used so many days thus far.
the greed dilemna's this.. if i choose 8/13 to be my last day, i'll get paid for the first 2 weeks in august plus this one vacation day. if i choose 8/20 to be my last day and take off a bunch of days next week, i'll be paid for a total of 3 weeks (although i wouldn't get that remaining vacation day paid for). i.e. if i use days next week, i'll be able to squeeze out a couple bucks extra here (between $450-800 depending on how many days i take off next week).
if i give my notice tomorrow and go the less profitable route, i'll be able to move to boston sooner and i'll have more time to settle in, but i'll get less money. if i go the other route, i'll move later it will be more of a rush between work-move-school, but i'll be able to snag more money..
