Re: Zee: When something no longer serves you and no longer brings you happiness, it’s most likely time to leave. If you have a gut feeling about this, go for it! If this job is your only source of income though, it can ease the transition by finding another job before you quit the one you have. Remember, you can still maintain your work relationships and keep friends, even if you no longer work at the same place.
Re: Brandi R: If you're asking yourself this question, then chances are you should move on from the job. You must not be fully content in your job situation to be questioning it. Although things aren't always that easy. It's good to think things through—try to answering these questions...
"Is this job benefiting me in anyway?" If yes, then try to put a value on how beneficial it is. You could also re-phrase this by asking if this job can help you grow in some way.
"Does this job make me feel better or worse?" If it makes you feel worse, likely not a good situation to stay in. Although sometimes you have to stick through a difficult job situation.
"Do I need this job to be financially stable?" If yes, then ask yourself, "Can I get another job pronto to stay financially stable?" If you can, then move on. It's usually smart to have another job lined up before moving on.
Short answer—make a pros and cons lists whether keeping the job is worth more than moving on. Best of luck!
Re: Izzy H: The ideal situation would be to have another job already ready. Depending on your situation though, it is hard to say. If you feel mistreated, there is no shame in putting your 2 weeks in, immediately. If you're just bored with it, ask yourself why, and if you can't fix it or it doesn't/can't get better, tough it out while you look for another job. If you want to just not work, then that is up to you. If you are able to not work & still be able to live, just without a little extra money, then kudos to you. You do that if it is what you desire. Just make sure that whatever your situation is, your decisions are thought out and prepared for because the future is imminent & a job may be necessary one day.
