Second thoughts about leaving your Job


Before meeting with your boss to hand in your letter of resignation, review the situation. There is still time to change your mind. Assess the validity of your reasons for wanting to leave your job and ask yourself if you are certain you want to leave.

Even if faced with a counter-offer of extra pay or benefits, you will have to think about what your boss will think of you, now that they know you wanted to leave.

Here are some questions to help you decide whether leaving your job is the right decision for you.

  • Have you compared the pros and cons of your current role with the new job you’ve been offered?
  • Have you done everything you could at your current company to get in line for promotion?
  • Would an offer of promotion, a higher salary or more benefits convince you to stay?
  • Are you a heart over head decision maker? Your head not your heart should be behind this decision.
  • What spurred you to look for another job in the first place? Is that still an issue? Is it likely to change?
  • Do you have goals and ambitions that can only be achieved with a move to another company/job?
