"Should I Quit my Job?"

1/4/2021, By Adrian Choo

"Should I quit my job?"

It's a tough question, especially in this C19 Job Market.

We get this question a lot and we've developed a 3-step response to it.

1. Is it hurting you mentally, emotionally, or physically?

If the boss is abusive, or the environment unhealthy, or if it's making you lose sleep and self-confidence, then these are legitimate reasons to quit.

2. What exactly am I unhappy with? Can it be changed?

If you're unhappy with the work you do, can you switch roles? Or if the department is toxic, can you request a transfer? Identify the 'unhappy'... And if it can't be changed, you could consider leaving for something better.

3. Can you wait it out? Do you have to quit now?

Can you bear with it a while longer whilst looking for another one? Buying yourself time for a better deal is a safe strategy.

What other reasons do you think are legitimate for leaving?
