25 Good Reasons for Quitting Your SharePoint Job by Priyanka Nagrale

Editor’s Note: 

The SharePoint industry has been associated with abundance of job opportunities and openings for

candidates looking for mid-to-senior level positions. The demand often leads to a lack of due

diligence on behalf of companies in terms of skillset analysis, and personality to determine if it is a good fit.

This guest post article covers some reasons that you may want to consider new opportunities for

your career in SharePoint.

 

While most people view quitting a job as a last resort there can be some very good reasons for

quitting your job. Some of these reasons you might be aware of others you might not be aware

of. Nevertheless, when you resign your employment you are simply quitting your job and nothing

more. Drama is almost always a sure fire way to burn a bridge versus amicably transitioning yourself to

another position.

Leaving behind nothing more than positive and cordial feelings might not accurately depict what

you feel, but you never know when you might need a job from someone you have alienated.

Quitting a job well usually means that you can at least get some references or even be rehired if

the need arises.

There are at least 25 good reasons for quitting, job markets tend to be fickle and you have to

strike toward advancement whenever possible. If you feel strongly that you have reasons,

quit, job seek to find the right match, and set new

professional goals for yourself.

 

1. You are not able to make ends meet on your current salary. This can often be handled by

finding a job that pays only 2 to 3% more than your current job.

 

2. Remember that the only person you have to justify your decision to is you. In a flimsy

economy the prospects for a better job with a company that is built to withstand the roller coaster

we fondly refer to as the economic crisis.

 

3. Long commutes often eat up more in gas and wear and tear on the car than they are worth. The

extra time away from your family and the eventual costs should be evaluated. A shorter commute

is always in your best interest.

 

4. Poor management and poor company policies are two of the top good reasons for quitting, job

strain with a difficult management team can be absolutely unbearable. When your morals are

divided with management morality, you may find yourself in a lose-lose situation if you don’t

move on.

 

5. Not all management is going to present the consumer or the employees with facts. As the

world becomes more aware of environmental concerns, economic recovery, and the potential for

developing a green market product or service there are plenty of unscrupulous managers willing

to fill the need with shoddy attempts to fill the green market.

 

6. Any company that willingly engages in illegal activities, such as dumping, OSHA violations,

or workplace violations are not companies that have their employees best interest at heart.

 

7. Outsourcing to other countries has become a huge problem in American companies. If your

job is about to be outsourced it is in your best interest to find another job as soon as possible.

 

8. There are managers who divvy up pay checks, bonuses, and other special favors based on

performances that have nothing to do with market share. Situations like these are most definitely

good reasons for quitting job.

 

9. Poor management usually leads to employees feeling as though they could simply spend their

days playing games online and they would receive the exact same feedback they do when they

work hard. Lack of management recognition often leads to eventual resentment.

 

10. Feelings of job boredom or simply being taken advantage of can grow from irritating to a

need to find a new job. Everyone needs to feel that they are good at what they do and that there is

some value in what they do.

 

11. To add to the growing list of reasons for quitting, job situations as such generally do not offer

their employees much room to grow through the company and advance.

 

12. When a company starts to go under staying out of loyalty or a sense of obligation only makes

it harder for you to find a job when the company goes under. You are not required to stay for the

duration of the downfall.

 

13. Sometimes the pay is good but the benefits are seriously lacking. Another job that offers the

same or even slightly lower pay with better benefits could be in your long term best interest.

 

14. Let’s face it. Sometimes you provide your own reasons for quitting your job. Poor job

performance, unprofessional behavior, and a lackadaisical attitude regarding showing up on time

can give you a rather unpleasant reputation around the company. Once you have branded

yourself through the display of unsatisfactory behaviors it is very difficult for anyone within the

company to disregard your reputation. This can mean the loss of promotions, raises, and of

course, eventual dismissal. Finding a new job before you are released for your unflattering

behaviors is most likely in your best interest. Remember that a chance to start fresh is a chance to

make the changes you want to see within yourself.

 

15. The same can be said about your relationships with your colleagues and your superiors. It is

not always easy to get along with a number of different people, but not making friends and

playing nicely is no reason to walk out on an income. However, if you have behaved poorly

toward your colleagues, your superiors, or both you probably have many reasons for quitting job

and it is probably in your best interest to do so.

 

16. While you should never quit a job on the spur of the moment and should always have another

job lined up before you puff out your chest and leave, be sure you know the difference between a

burned opportunity and a few days of discomfort while emotions settle down. People are human

and mistakes are part of the deal.

 

17. When a job is inhibiting your health. If you are experiencing physical difficulties it is time to

realize that you have ample reason. Quit. Job stress that creates that much difficulty, places you

in the unfortunate situation of having to undermine your own values.

 

18. Emotional problems that stem from your job should also be taken into consideration.

Emotional stress is just as damaging as physical stress and should be taken seriously.

 

19. If you are experiencing well covered but obvious harassment from management or coworkers

is job stress that is asking you to demean your own integrity. Harassment of any sort is illegal in

the work place, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen.

 

20. Being passed over continuously for promotions can indicate a need to move to another job.

While sometimes job performance is the issue, of you have corrected and heeded your superiors

advice and aren’t going anywhere, you might want to consider moving on.

 

21. We spend at the very least 40 hours of our week at work. Most of us spend more than that,

including travel time and day care stops. While there are very few jobs that are going to make

you smile and sing in your heart on a daily basis, no one should hate their job. There is a

difference between hating your job and hating the idea of working for a living. If your job is

really that miserable that you can barely drag yourself out of bed, smile, or even appreciate the

paycheck then perhaps you should evaluate whether or not you have reasons for quitting job. At

the very least you should be able to tolerate what you do for a living and at least enjoy the

scenery or the people or one aspect of your job that makes it fun. At best, you love what you do

for a living. Hating your job and watching your deterioration from that reality happen over time

can be heart breaking. Find a job that is more fun.

 

22. Maybe you’re just ready to start your own business and the job you have now is holding you

back from your goals.

 

23. Sometimes life actually goes your way and gives you good reasons for quitting job. Offers of

new employment elsewhere at a better pay rate with a better benefits package is too good not to

leap for, although you should thoroughly check out the company before transferring.

 

24. Starting a family and having the ability to leave one income behind is true blessing and a life

experience that is positive and beautiful that equals a fantastic reason to quit a job.

 

25. Relocating to your dream destination or at least relocating to somewhere new, and changing

careers are very good reasons. Quit, job or life transforms, and you are now living a new life just

like that. When something good comes along it is exciting to realize the possibilities that.
