I believe it's time to let go of a job when you feel unhappy about it--unhappiness not in terms of salary or monetary gains or material benefits of some sort but, just being happy about doing your job and making people happy from your output--if this lacks, then it's time to let go of that job, what the heck! How about you Guys? Have you tried letting go of a job, when and why did you do it? For you when is the TIME to let go of a job? Thanks for sharing! Happy posting!

You're right mjmlagat, you should let go of the job when you don't feel happy anymore or when you feel uncomfortable, because pursuing your career and your unhappy with it is just like wasting your own time. :)

I have been at my current job for 1 1/2 years and LOVE it! But before I was hired here, I was working in retail and HATED it. Set asied the fact that I didn't make enough money for what I did, worked sucky hours and busted my BUTT, but I felt that I was being treated poorly/unfair compared to others that I worked with. I think you just "know" when it's time to find another job. Luckily in my case, I didn't even have to search for the job I have now! It honestly just fell right into my lap. I work for a real estate company and someone I know told me her company was hiring...well they ended up passing my resume onto their sister company as well and I was hired with them. I wasn't even applying at any other places, I just took a shot and I was hired! It's one of the best decisions I've ever made, and by far the best job I have ever had.

I guess when you finally feel burned out, then that's the time when you should let go of your job. Burnout occurs when you feel very sick and tired of your work already, and you feel inferior about yourself. I burned out at just 2 years just because of a very oppressive boss. Although I was not at fault, when all of us four Senior Quality Executives are called into his office because of issues with the other three, I also got yelled at, even though I was doing nothing wrong. Because I got so terrified and burned out, I decided to quit. But during the exit interview, I told HR everything. That arrogant boss is now under audit by the Managing Director. When I learned about it, I felt my burnout gradually fade away. I've heard that more and more employees are starting to file formal complaints as well. I might return there when that bad boss gets kicked out (I wish!). But now, I still feel burned out from working there.
