mikeinslc saidI know it's insane, but I think I'd like to quit the job I've had for all of ten months. There are loads of hostile employees and favoritism. The job market isn't exactly on fire right now... Probably the only thing holding me back.
I agree, it's best to look while you're employed than unemployed. You simply look more attractive to interviewers.
I'd venture to say we'd all had this feeling at least once at work. I sure have. I was hired for one position, only to be leveraged into another that I am not good at. It was devastating.
Long story, but I toughed it out and I'm back to where I started, which is a good thing. I think everyone has some kind of issues at work, whether it be working conditions, employee issues, being overworked, etc. Make sure you think long and hard about such a decision. Resigning out of anger/frustration is a huge mistake.
