When I saw how many people ghost their jobs, I was shocked. I don't think I could ever not show up to a job and think that was ok.

If you've looked around Wyoming for jobs, you've noticed many available. Employers are actively looking to fill positions but have difficulty finding people to take the jobs.

If you place your resume on websites like Indeed, LinkedIn, or ZipRecruiter and are qualified for a job, at least you'll likely have a chance.

The problem is when a person gets a job they don't enjoy and has reached their breaking point, quitting is the first action taken. If they dislike the job, 19% of people will ghost it.

Ghost quitting is like ghosting a date: you don't show up, you don't call, and you don't officially terminate your position.

You're a ghost.

Spooky, Thinktock

Unless you're leaving your job to take another job and you leave on good terms, it probably won't be a pleasant situation when you go to quit. Quitting a job should be a skill that's taught in school. You never want to burn a bridge in case you need a reference or a job down the road.

91% of the respondents to a recent Preply survey say they avoid using negative language when they quit, and 3 in 5 say they try not to get emotional, so they're NOT burning a bridge.

Not Everyone is good at quitting or properly quitting a job.

  • 1 in 8 people have timed their resignation to impact their employer the most.
  • 1 in 10 have given negative reviews of an old job online
  • 10% of managers say they've been yelled at by a former employee about their work experience.
  • 1 in 5 people quitting will only use one or two sentences to leave, some in an email or text

If you must quit a job, think about it, and don't let emotion get the best of you. Find the right way to leave with your dignity and an open door for the future.
