Karen's story

3 years ago I happily bounced into work, with a spring in my step that was highly unusual, to tender my very polite and professional resignation. Oh, that was a happy day that nearly three years later, still brings a smile to my face.

Stephan's story

I quit my job today! Don’t know what I am going to for sure, I just know that by quitting I instantly improved the quality of my life.

Sander's story

The CEO told me during a meeting to “Just shut up and trust them” when I asked about my future with the new company. I got up out of the meeting and printed my resignation. Went back into the meeting and handed it over to him. Went back out of the meeting and put out the word I needed a new job. Before the day was over I had an interview lined up.

Kim's story

I’ve disliked my job for a while but was using most of your excuses not to quit. I will be submitting my resignation letter tomorrow but felt I was letting down myself, family, the people who work for me, etc. After going through your website I do feel better about proceeding. I have worked for great companies and great bosses so I know what it SHOULD be like and this is not it. Thank you for reinforcing what I already knew which is that I deserve better.

Too many people stay for too long in jobs they hate. An estimated 20-25% of employees hate their jobs and wish they could quit tomorrow. This is bad for you. Being unhappy at work can destroy your career, your health, your family and your private life.

Quitting is an option and often it’s the best option. That's why we're declaring March 31 to be International Quit Your Crappy Job Day.
