I have no idea how to quit my job. I am a full time student who is in a 10 month contract. I have no idea how to do anything. I work my second job part-time and I’m so confused. I need help. I need a change. I’m doing this for a living and I need help.
So if you’re like most of us, you might think that quitting a job wouldn’t be too bad. It’s true that a lot of companies are finding it hard to get rid of employees, and it’s also true that quitting one’s job at a certain point can feel like the most natural thing to do.
Yes, quitting a job is a bad thing. The problem is that quitting is usually not the best, or the quickest, or the most effective way to accomplish anything. A lot of people lose their jobs for a variety of reasons, not the least of which because they don’t have the skills or the experience to keep working. The second problem is often that quitting is considered a “normal” thing to do because it is seen as part of the process for being fired.
The third problem is that quitting is actually very difficult to do if you have a good reason to quit (like a family member telling you to leave). So I guess the real answer is to just start working.
I do have to add, however, that the whole text message thing is a little silly. It’s not like you actually sent a text message to your boss, so if you’re going to quit over text, at least take some time to be nice and polite.
A lot of people quit their job over text messages, and for good reason. I don’t know of any company that does that.
It is certainly true that many companies will send their employees a text to let them know that they are about to be fired. The problem is that these messages are usually sent by people that the employee knows personally. They may not even realize that they are about to be fired, so they are sent with the assumption that the employee is going to keep quiet about it.
Text messages are one of the most personal things that you can do with your job. It’s common to feel like employees are trying to bully you into keeping quiet about something that is no longer important. A good example of this is the recent employee harassment suit against Apple. When the suit was announced, Apple issued a public statement saying that the allegations against the employee were false and that the employee was going to be paid.
When you’re talking to people who are doing things that are no longer important, you find it difficult to say you’re sorry because you can still be angry about it. You want to be angry about what’s happened to you, you have to let it go.
But if you can say that you are sorry to the person you are talking to and to them, but you still don’t care, then you’re probably not really sorry. You’re not really sorry that you failed to hire someone who would have been a great manager for you. Or that you had to fire someone who was actually a good manager. Or that you had to let someone go who was a good manager.
