"What I wish I had known before I left"

HPAA members were asked: "What do you wish you had known before you left?"

The responses have been organized into several articles:

- Heads Up - Surprises and Hazards
- Job and Career Issues

- Benefits Issues

- Financial Issues

- Looking at the Big Picture

Also see our ASAP Checklist. Member advice on what to do before losing access to company systems -- and in the following few weeks. (HPAA membership not required)
