The prospect of quitting your job and facing the employment search in California may be daunting. That is especially true if you do not have a developed professional network or a series of quality job leads to help you while you are unemployed.
The risks of joblessness do little to prevent many Californians from leaving their current employers. At Jay S. Rothman & Associates, we often help workers who have finally decided that enough is enough. If you decide to follow a similar path, we suggest that you make sure that an exit is your best option.
One of the most popular reasons we see for people leaving a good work environment is reduced importance. If you feel that your role has diminished in value for your company, it is likely that there is a reason. Whatever the reason — if your organization changed direction or computer programs are automating your duties, for example — lower importance often means less chance for advancement and possible downsizing.
On the other hand, you might want to keep your job. If illegal harassment or wage violations were the reason you wanted to leave, it could benefit you to rethink that move until you do some research on the situation. Even though toxic relationships are among the top reasons people quit their jobs, you do not necessarily have to quit without trying to stay. There is no reason you should not try to save a job you like in a career path you love because of someone who overstepped a boundary.
