Unreasonable Excuses to Leave Your Current Employer

workplace career advice

Most people work just hard enough not to get fired and get paid just enough money not to quit.
– George Carlin/ American stand-up comedian, social critic, actor, and author

Are you thinking of quitting the job you used to love? Stop and ponder on this question first, “Why do I want to leave?” Before you file your resignation letter, make sure your reason isn’t because…

… you hate your co-worker
… you find the new hire annoying
… the office doesn’t sound or smell good anymore (i.e. the kitchen is dirty, the AC is broken, or your chair feels uneven)
… your boss favored your colleague’s idea instead of yours
… you think you deserve higher pay
… you’re bored
… you feel overworked
… you feel undervalued
… you received a better offer from another company

Here are some reasons your manager will find reasonable for your resignation:

• You’re forced into a role you didn’t sign up for in the first place
• You’re not getting paid what you’re worth
• You find little or no opportunity to develop your skills
• There’s suspicious stuff going on (and you don’t want to be involved)

Don’t let small complaints and nuances ruin your chances of shooting your career to greater heights.
