Should You Quit Your Job (Even Now)?

Should You Quit Your Job (Even Now)?

Should you stay or should you go?

Budget for a year

Unlike in a thriving economy – when DeZube suggests having six months worth of living expenses budgeted for – quitting now means budgeting for a year of unemployment.

Alanna Fero, Career Coach and author of Love Made Visible, agrees with DeZube.

Fero’s job is to help people pursue their dreams – but she admits that right now, even the most passionate dreamers should proceed with caution.

“A year ago, I would have said three month’s savings were enough. Today I would say, hold onto your job and let’s do this on a part time basis. Because it might take a bit longer for people to do what they want to do.”

She is adamant, however, about not using the recession as an excuse to stay at a job you hate.
