Good Reasons to Quit Your Job
  1. You Found a New Job. Obviously, the best reason for quitting a job is that you’ve found a new one. Before you quit your job, though, make sure that you’ve covered all the bases, including having a confirmed job offer and a cleaned-out computer and office before you quit.
  2. You Hate Your Job. Don’t quit your job right away, even if you hate it. It’s better to strategically plan your departure so that you’re leaving on your terms and not scrambling to find another position. Here’s what to do if you hate your job.
  3. Illness. Personal or family illnesses are both legitimate reasons to quit a job, and sometimes a sudden illness can be an excuse to leave a position. If it’s a legitimate reason to quit (i.e., you or someone in your family is chronically ill), make sure that you have continued health insurance coverage after you leave. Also be aware that you may be eligible for Family and Medical Leave due to personal or family illness.
  4. Difficult Work Environment. Co-workers, bosses, and a negative office environment can all make your job difficult. In fact, they can make your workplace somewhere you simply don’t want to be. Once you have tried every option, you may need to make a decision to leave. Here’s how to decide when iTech Hacks to leave a difficult workplace and how to move on.
  5. Schedules and Hours. When you lose childcare or your work schedule has changed and it’s difficult for you to adjust, you may need to quit your job and look for one that is more accommodating to your personal schedule. Leaving a job because of scheduling issues is a legitimate reason for quitting a job.
