It Does Matter How We Leave Our Jobs. We Need To Leave With Integrity and Dignity.

How to Leave

Being at a job for over 19 months that I didn’t go to school for is more than enough. I need to gain experience and have an interest in what I am doing. I don’t enjoy the majority of the people I work with. My boss is an ogre who leaves for hours at a time only to give me minimal instruction or support. I don’t have any benefits and the only thing that keeps me there is the pay which is higher than most jobs for people my age. ~Worker Living in PENNSYLVANIA While we are on the job…

Take a Break From the Rat Race & Follow YOUR Dreams

Follow dreams

I need a sabbatical, recuperation, and I want to work on other projects. ~Worker Living in the UNITED KINGDOM We all need a break from time to time. How wonderful it would be if we could “Just Quit” our jobs on a trial basis and come back in three months if we decided to; if we couldn’t figure out what we wanted to do; if we had enough income for that three months to be able to live comfortably; to do what we really want to do for just three months. Well, that’s not how it is; but what if…

Yes, “Just Quit” Is A Risk…BUT…It Can Lead To The Good Life

good life

I studied very hard thinking that I would live a good life after I graduated, but I think I’m the most unhappy person. I hate this place. I don’t care about my job anymore. I feel like this is punishment for something terrible that I did. I am a lot happier when I’m at home, with my family, friends, and my boyfriend. I’m happy even when I’m in class and doing everything else outside of my job. My job is tiring and makes me feel sick and the worst thing is the night shift. I feel like crying like a baby…

If You Fell Into Your Profession…You Don’t HAVE To Stay…

Decide What To Be

In addition to providing no challenge, or fulfillment — my current job is completely unrelated to my personal interests and values. I fell into the position because it paid very well and came with a certain degree of prestige, but I’ve never truly been interested in the work, or the industry and I’ve been looking for a way out since I hit the three-month mark (I’m currently a week shy of two years). I’m not able to use my natural strengths, and I am 100% confident that this job is in no way related to my true purpose. I can…
