Preparing to Quit


8/9/2007 3:35:20 AM



By Cynthia M Piccolo (MedHunters) - When you are considering quitting, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • If you're unsure whether you're making the right decision, talk to someone you trust. They can provide you with an outsider's perspective about whether they think that quitting is the best thing, or whether they believe that you are overreacting to something that's going on in your life or at work.

  • Get your family's buy-in. They will be affected by your decision, and will be a source of financial and emotional support if you end up between jobs.

  • Unless finances are not a problem, before you quit, have a job lined up, or at the very least, start laying the groundwork for a new job by sending out résumés and networking. You may also want to see whether, where you live, your reason for quitting is one that will allow you to collect unemployment benefits. If you don't have a job lined up, look at your budget to see if you can reduce your living expenses. And remember: Experts usually suggest having enough money to cover three months worth of living expenses.

  • Follow the instructions on how to make a graceful exit, e.g., give as much notice as required.

  • Stay positive and confident by doing things like looking after yourself, staying active, and not dwelling on the job you're leaving. Negativity will make you continually question yourself and may bring you down in an interview situation when you need to be putting on a strong show.
