If you are a working professional, you know life is not a cakewalk. In the 21st century, the world is moving at the speed of light and the demands of our jobs are high. While there are people who are still struggling with their existing jobs, there are a few who shared with us, anonymously, that one moment where they knew they had to quit their job.
1. The One With Unanticipated Appraisal
“I knew I had to change my job when after serving a company for two years, during the time of appraisals, I got 4% raise which was basically peanuts. I decided I wanted to switch right when I had opened the appraisal letter in my hand.” – Data Analyst, 27.
2. The One With The Hypocritical Boss
“When I found out my boss was a stereotypical, hypocritical dumbass. I just couldn’t work with her anymore. She’d treat different people differently and I didn’t want that kind of negativity in my life.” – Writer, 23.
3. The One With The Work Friend
“When my work friend quit his job, I knew I will have to quit my job too. Though as stupid as it sounds, it actually is important to have great friends at work. They make life bearable and I knew I won’t be able to survive without him.” – Accounts Manager, 26.
4. The One With An Exhausting Job
“I was a marketing professional working for a startup and my job was exhausting. Meetings after meetings, targets and then some new targets – there’s was no moment to breathe. I had let my job consume me so much, that it eventually started affecting my physical health. I knew I had to quit for my own sake.” – Marketing Head, 29.
5. The One With The Right Career Choice
“I served a company for 10 years, and as bizarre as it sounds, I loved my job. The reason I quit was because the digital industry was taking over print and it was only fair for me to make a switch to get ahead in my career.” – Digital Content Editor, 35.
6. The One With Graveyard Shifts
“I am an engineer by profession and the job I earlier had was usually in shifts and sometimes, I had to work over the weekends. After getting married, I couldn’t give time to my wife and family and realised I had to switch to a job that has regular working hours, instead of the graveyard ones.” – Engineer, 29.
7. The One With A Startup
“I happily quit my job to start my own work. I realised the time, the energy and the efforts I give in to my employer’s company, what would happen if I did it for something of my own. I am struggling right now, you know, since it’s not easy to get your own business started, but I am glad I took this decision.” – Architect, 26.
8. The One With A Dream Come True
“I was the Tech Lead at a renowned company for over three years. Soon after I got into this field, I knew I was good at it but I also knew I didn’t enjoy it much. I always wanted to be a photographer and so I quit my job to do something I genuinely loved. I freelance now and I am happy with how it all turned out.” – Freelance Photographer, 28.
9. The One With A Shouting Boss
“I quit my previous job because they changed my schedule, my working hours, without informing me and when I skipped office, by mistake, my boss shouted at me in front of the whole team the next day. I decided to put down my papers then and there.” – Edit Coordinator, 23.
10. The One With A New Job
“I quit my job for a simple reason, I wanted better pay and the best way to get that is by switching jobs. Right now, I love my new job and it pays much more too.” – Digital Content Producer, 25.
11. The One With No Leaves
“I quit my job because my boss refused to give me leaves. Now it would have been fine if it was how he dealt with everyone else in his team but, no, this special treatment was only for me and so I left. At my new company, it’s even worse. So I don’t know if it was the right decision.” – Community Manager, 27.
