How To Quit a Job: 

Ways to Actually Leave a Job You Hate

Do you dread going to your job every day? Are you constantly counting down the days until the weekend or vacation?

If this sounds like you, it might be time to quit your job. But before you do, there are a few things you need to keep in mind.

In this post, we will discuss how to quit a job in a way that won't damage your future career prospects. We'll also talk about what to do once you've quit your job and how to deal with the negative emotions that often accompany it.

Give Your Employer Adequate Notice

It is essential to check your employment contract and agreements. Some employers specify in your new hire paperwork if any particular notice time is needed to preserve getting paid for unused benefits (such as paid time off).

Even though you leave on good terms, you don't want to miss out on money because you didn't provide enough notice. While a notice period is not mandatory, it prevents burning bridges and potentially hindering your chances with a future employer.

Write a Formal Resignation Letter

A resignation letter is a formal, written record of your decision to leave. It should include the date you plan to leave, any reasons for your departure, and a thank you for the opportunity.

While this may seem unnecessary, it could be helpful if you need a reference or are applying for another job. It also shows your previous employer that you respect their time and appreciate the opportunities they have provided.

Prepare for The Possibility of Having to Answer Difficult Questions

They may want to know why you are leaving, if there is anything they can do to keep you, or if any other concerns need addressing.
