Make It Work: How To Quit Your Job

Make It Work: How To Quit Your Job

There comes a time in everyone’s career when you will quit your job. You will stand in your boss’s doorway, cock your head and say, “Do you have sec?” You will quietly shut the door. You will sit down in that weird chair reserved for guests and your boss’s jacket, palms sweating, and tell him or her that you have found a new job, or are moving to Sweden, or are starting grad school in the fall. You will tell them that you are very sorry, but the time has come for you to part ways. Your boss will accept this with grace and, if they are a nice boss and a decent person, a congratulations. You will make a plan for departure. You will leave the office that day with the weight of a million hours’ of shitty emails and bad vibes off your shoulders, completely, and for good. Congratulations, you just quit your job! Keep reading »

Thinking About Quitting Your Job? Follow Karlie Hustle's Advice!
How To Quit Your Job

I’m not thinking about quitting my job, but if I was, I would follow Karlie Hustle’s advice to the letter. Hustle recently quit her job at New York City’s Hot 97 radio station — you may recognize her from the VH1 reality show “This Is Hot 97″ — to pursue new opportunities, including launching her own line of wooden bow ties. But she didn’t do it without first making sure that she was in the right financial state and mindset to branch out on her own, and she’s sharing her tips in her regular YouTube series, “How To Quit Your Job.” Honestly, the advice is so to-the-point and solid, I think it’s actually helpful for those who aren’t quitting their jobs, but want to launch a side project or get a better handle on their money. So far, she’s done nine step videos and one check-in video about her own progress since quitting her job less than two months ago. Get inspired by watching above! [YouTube]

Taiwanese Animation Company Responds

Believe me, I want to believe as much as the next cubicle monkey that this woman who quit her job via a video of her doing an interpretive dance to Kanye West’s song “Gone” is real. I have wanted to go out in a blaze of glory at so, so many jobs. But now that the very same Taiwanese animation company which supposedly employed Marina Shifrin — who, by the way, is a comedian — have responded with their own video, I find it increasingly less likely this whole thing is real. Isn’t this just a massive PR stunt? These people make viral videos for a living. Watch Next Media Animation’s “response” video and tell me you don’t agree with me. [YouTube]

Woman Quits Job With Awesome Video Resignation
I QUIIIIIIIT!!!!!!!

Who hasn’t at one point — or many — dreamed of quitting their job in some sort of dramatic, clever fashion? Marina V. Shifrin, a video producer, was sick of insanely late nights spent creating videos that were only valued by her boss based on the views they received rather than the content therein. So, one night at 4:30 am, while stuck in the office, she decided to make one video on her own terms: an interpretive “I quit!” dance to Kanye West’s “Gone.” How much you wanna bet this video gets more views than the others she did for work? I’m happy to help with that by posting it. You go, girl. [via Thought Catalog]

It’s Quittin’ Time! Your Best Quitting Stories

We’ve been abuzz this week with news of flight attendant Steve Slater’s dramatic exit from a Jet Blue plane and (presumably) his job. Then we heard about the (confirmed as totally fake) woman who quit her job via a carefully worded series of dry erase board messages. It reminded us of one of our all-time favorite quitters — W. Neil Berrett — who quit via a GIANT SHEET CAKE (tasty and to-the-point!).

While we’ve certainly fantasized about leaving past jobs in a cloud of smoke, booze and tears, we’ve never actually done anything like the folks above. But we’re betting that some of you have a similar flair for the dramatic. So what’s the best or worst way you’ve ever quit a job? Keep reading »

These People Know How to Quit A Job With Flair

In today’s economy, you hear more about people looking for jobs than leaving them. But that doesn’t mean the world still isn’t full of disgruntled workers who decide it’s better to drop their job then deal with the daily torment. While most people’s resignations involve a two weeks notice and a quiet exit, there are a few who decide to turn their leaving into a memorable event. We are talking Jerry Maguire — walking out with a fish and Renee Zellweger — kind of productions here. Two happened just this week. Keep reading »
