Are you thinking about leaving your job?


During the epidemic, many people felt uncomfortable in their jobs for safety reasons. As we leave the epidemic and begin to return to a new normal state, professionals are leaving their jobs in record numbers. If you are thinking about quitting your job, have you ever wondered why you want to quit? Do you have other work or have you just finished, burned out and do you need time to recover without queuing for a new job?

Studies have shown that the longer you stay out of work or unemployed, the harder it will be to find employment. Keep this in mind when you think about what to do. Don’t just leave without a plan. If you are ready to quit your job, make sure you have another job secured or stand in line to keep yourself employed.

I want you to consider three questions before you leave your job.

Did you want to leave your location before the epidemic was set up?

It’s important to see how you see your future and where you want to be. Before the epidemic, were you happy or dissatisfied with your current job? As you explore the reasons why you want to leave, be sure to go to the bottom of the page and really see why you want to leave. Your reasons may be that you are getting low pay, lack of chances of progress, you are working for an unpleasant manager, your journey is difficult, or you are working in a toxic environment, to name a few.

Take some time to journal about the reasons you want to leave. Give it multiple sentences or a few words; Try writing a really good paragraph or two about each area. Now that you have the negative factors that are pushing you out the door, I want you to focus on what you like about your work. The reasons may be your easy commute, your coworker, work variety, work / life balance or many other areas. Make sure you write at least one paragraph about each of your choices so you can better understand what you enjoy in your work.

With these two lists complete, you can now compare and see which parts of your work you want to move forward or need in your new job more than the other.

Is it possible to stay in the company?

Now that you have a list to evaluate your situation, it’s easy to talk to your manager and see if some aspects can be corrected to make your job a more enjoyable experience. By communicating openly with your manager, you will see that they are willing to make some adjustments to your job, your schedule, or your unfulfilled professional desires. If your manager is a cause of dissatisfaction with your current job, is there a way to transfer to another department and do the job you enjoy?

If you can’t make small changes in the workplace to keep you satisfied, then you can do something at home to enhance yourself and your identity outside of your role. It can give you some satisfaction, motivation and achievement as you try something new outside of your workplace.

What is your vision?

It’s important to think about what you think is your top quality and work environment. Take some time to journal about these so that you have a good idea of ​​the key things you are looking for in the next company or job setting. Once you have an idea of ​​what you want, you can begin to search which companies might match your values ​​and demands. You can do this by researching companies and expanding your network connections through LinkedIn to get better information and potential landing spots for your next job. Take the time to reach out to professionals from other companies you want to learn about and connect with so that you can build a relationship. It is important to make sure that this is a two-way street where both of you will benefit from the interaction.

These are just three basic questions you should ask yourself when you are considering leaving your current job. It’s important not to just jump before you take a strategy and reflect on your current situation. Be sure to take the time to think about who you are and what you have brought to the table with your future outlook on what you want and need. That way you have a better idea of ​​which companies and professionals you will connect with and learn from. Tune in for three more questions next week that you must consider when thinking about quitting your current job.
