7 Reasons To Quit Your Job
Expert Career Coach Leslie Juvin-Acker Discusses 7 Reason To Quit Your Job
1. Ethical Issues
Your company creates products that you don’t believe in or engages in unethical practices that could lead to misrepresent your professional reputation, then it’s time to leave. Life is too short to engage in activities that are against our ethics.
2. No More Challenges
You’re not being challenged anymore. Either your management isn’t challenging you or you’re not challenging yourself. If you have spoken with your manager and tried to identify ways to improve your work, get a promotion, or earn more compensation to no avail, then move on.
3. Poorly Treated
There’s a huge difference between constructive criticism and cruelty. If your colleagues or management is treating you poorly, belittling you, or not offering you the most basic of politesse even after you have confronted their behavior, then it’s time to move on.
4. Company is Going Under
You’ve sensed that the company is no longer protecting employees from unemployment or offering the same benefits you’ve enjoyed the past (or not trying to find lost cost alternatives). People are being laid off left and right and you’re scared that you’re next on the chopping block. Now is the time to start looking. If you have tried your best to improve sales, morale, and have made several attempts to communicate your concerns with those in charge, then start looking for greener pastures.
If you’ve got an overwhelming sense of dread to go to work, then you’re experiencing what I like to call “intuition”. Your gut is telling you that you’re in the wrong place with the wrong people.
6. You’re changing and not for the better
Friends or family members are noticing your changes and they’re worried. Be open to their thoughts and see what’s changing and what’s causing the changes. Whether you’re very stressed, losing weight, having a bad attitude and so forth, these are reasons to evaluate your career and decide whether to make serious changes or quit.
7. You’re physically ill.
There are some environments that can make one physically ill or live in pain. If your back hurts too much, or your stomach feels in knots at work and suddenly feels better when you leave, or if you get constant headaches and physical pains. Time to talk with your doctor and eliminate the causes of your physical pains.
