3 Times It’s Smart to Quit Your Job

It happens even to the best employees. Your manager asks to speak with you, and the Human Resources staff member is in there as well. They use those dreaded words, “we have decided to let you go.” 

I’ve been on the receiving end of this news more than once, unfortunately.

Is there something wrong with me? 

Why did they not share their displeasure with me or my performance sooner?

The biggest worry is how will this affect my future employment opportunities? And how should I speak about it when it inevitably comes up in an interview?
