5 Reasons to Quit Your Job

Not enjoying what you do is probably the first indication that you should quit your job. However, it sometimes so happens that you can’t quite put your finger on what’s wrong though you know something is not right.

Here are some signs that indicate you need to chuck your job.

1. Low salary

Your workload has increased but your salary hasn’t. This is definitely not a good thing, especially if you find it difficult to survive on your current wages.
 
If you find yourself staying back at work without any commensurate travel or food allowance, it’s time to change your job.

2. No satisfaction
Zero job satisfaction will demotivate you, which will reflect badly on your performance. Don’t wait till you get fired. If your job does not appeal to you, what are you still slogging for?

Find yourself another job that will satisfy your drive and ambition.

3. Discrimination

If you feel that your progress is being hindered because of your gender, age or background, do not hesitate at all to change your job.
 
4. Bad boss/ Tough colleagues

Working with people you don’t like can be tough. This can be worse if your boss is absolutely incompetent. If you really cannot work with your current boss or colleagues anymore, it’s time you moved on to something else. A good team and working environment could make you more productive too.
 
5. Better offer

They made you an offer you can’t refuse/ resist. Remember, a once-in-a-lifetime career opportunity could mean you’re landed. Don’t let go of it out of a sense of loyalty to your current employers. After all, you are just another employee to them!
 
The only thing that should probably keep you back is an even better offer from your boss.
The end of one job signifies the beginning of another. So, embrace change!
