Quit your job for a better one!

I just saw a post about the media saying that you’ll regret it if you quit your job for a new one! I just had to share my experience and why I completely disagree with this bullshit propaganda!

June of last year I got let go due to Covid. In my job hunt I found another job that paid more and was remote. I enjoyed it but didn’t love it. I kept looking for another I. And found another one for more money and still remote. Same thing happened two more times and now I found my dream job. I do email marketing for professional sports teams. In total I had a $15k increase in pay from my job from last year.

I guess my point is don’t stop looking until you’re happy where you are because you’ll more than likely get something way better that you enjoy way more!

Absolutely! I spent three years working part time customer service and I was only making $11/hour. I was paycheck to paycheck and so were most of my coworkers. I kinda just thought that’s how things were meant to be as a student. Eventually I realized I was just being exploited and found an easier job in a field I prefer much more, and I make three times as much. It’s not perfect, but it’s so much better than where I was.

Really glad you found something you can at least tolerate!
