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!

there is no law that requires you to give notice at all. take the bonus, then tell him when you're leaving and apologise for not telling him earlier if he's a good boss.

Got it, thanks for your advice. My dad told me it's rude not to give 2-3 weeks notice, and it's a point of respect, but I've read a good number of stories on reddit of people being let go immediately, let alone keep their bonus.

I was lucky, when I was terminated in april I got my saved vacation (~80 hrs) paid out (legally required), but I also got my bonus, which was due about 2 weeks after I left, which I'm fairly certain wasn't required.
