Quitting advice

  1. To make many long stories short: I've been at my miserable job for two years now and I cannot take it anymore
  2. I was planning on putting in my two weeks soon
  3. Even though I don't have another job lined up yet
    I'm desperate to leave.
  4. But I was just told by my friend/coworker that she is officially putting in her two weeks soon
  5. My manager lowkey hates us both and hates that we're friends and he's done shady shit in the past to young employees
  6. So idk what to do
  7. My coworker and I are useless
  8. Should I wait until I find another job until the smoke blows over from my coworker leaving?
    I've never quit a job without having another one lined up so idk
  9. Should I wait a bit and quit regardless?
  10. Or should I say "fuck it" because I'm miserable and gtfo and live off my savings for 2-3 months?
  11. I'm not adult enough for this
  12. Any advice is appreciated ❤
  13. Your mental health matters! Bottom line! I guess I'd consider if your job is a stepping stone and one that you'd put on your résumé. It sounds like your boss wouldn't be someone you want as a reference anyway! Trust your gut 💚

  14. Spend a week or two lining up a new job. Then quit quit happily quit!

  15. Ultimately it's up to you. My advice is be smart about your savings and stick to a strict budget if you do quit. Stay productive by constantly putting new applications in to places - sometimes even ones you think you're not qualified for. The worst that can happen is you get no response!

  16. Spend every waking moment looking for a job. Almost everyone who is seen as a good candidate is one who is currently employed.
    It makes no sense, but that's the way it is. Find a job before you leave. If you need a break, give them one week's notice and tell your new job you can start in 3 weeks. You can work anywhere to fill in the gap, heck you could work at The Gap. 🤷🏽‍♀️
