It depends on how quickly you can find another job.  Some people can find another job in a matter of a few days, whereas if you work in a saturated field it could take months.

What are you going to graduate school for?

You never know how long that it could take to find a new job. My sister quit her job because it was emotionally taxing and she felt free as a bird for the first two months. Then it sunk in that finding a job is no easy thing these days. She was out of work for eight months and she's an engineer Confused She took a job that was worse than the last one, but she got an offer four months after she started.

 

There's no guarantee that your next job will be any better. You want to walk into a better situation, which you can do when you have the financial leverage to do so. If you feel like it's something that you have to do, then do it, but be prepared.

 


See I did this too, but I didn't have a degree. This is especially eye opening seeing people with degrees not being able to find jobs. Shyyyyt I'll never do that ish again. If you are working in the field your degree is in and you can't handle this job.....what are you going to do in the future? It's good to have experience to go along with your education. I'm sure you can get a full time call center or retail type of job if you hate it that much.

This job is in my career field but there are plenty of other jobs in my career field also.

According to my boss (also a career chemist) this is the most unorganized and stressful job he's worked at. He says he comes in every day because its hilarious. Confused

He also says that if/when we (me and the other scientist on staff) move on to any other company it will be cake because we've been forged by these fires.

1 - line up your interviews with company A - Z within a set 2 week period

2 - call in 'sick' from this job for 2 weeks

3- with those 2 weeks - interview constantly

4- return to work week 3 and wait for the offers to come in

5- when you get an offer - accept it but tell them you cannot start until X day so that you can have a nice 2 week break between jobs.

If your FIELD is Chemistry and they had you doing baby work ... this would be career suicide.


Not coming at you but wouldn't she have to come up with a doctor's note if she is goin to use her sick days?  I know every organizations is different but some companies require a doctor's note if you are "sick" for more than three days.
