10 Things Not To Say When You Quit Your Job

Don’t blog about it later

Dana Leavy of Aspyre Solutions said, “Avoid blogging about, or publicly sharing, your experience with the company even after you’ve left. While you might not be onsite, plenty of
your colleagues, customers and even former supervisors may be connected with you via outlets like LinkedIn or Twitter, and bad-mouthing a former employer can certainly still do damage to your reputation even in your absence.”

      While I agree that when quitting a job you should maintain professionalism and not burn bridges, I don’t agree with half of these “do not say” things. I think it’s only fair to tactfully let an employer know why you are leaving a job. If you were bullied and that person still works there, a manager should definitely know that HR problem still exists. If you were bored or underpaid the company should know that’s how you felt, because it might be a problem with too much/little workload assigned to that position which they can fix for the hire and avoid more turn around.

      If there is a problem with the job, and that’s why you are leaving, it’s only fair to the company/manager to let them know so they can make improvements. Turn around is costly, so they will appreciate avoiding multiple people having the same issues and constantly leaving without really saying why.
