Here comes the irony. I’m leaving a job because I found a new one with better pay, but this post illustrates nearly the opposite point. So, that’s some full disclosure for you right off the bat.
Cash is Not Always King
But here’s the thing. It seems like every time someone leaves a job, everyone automatically assumes it’s solely based on the money. That’s a pretty important aspect, don’t get me wrong, but there are many other factors that go in to most decisions like that.
Things like greater responsibility, maybe some family issues, and I’m sure there are many other scenarios that play out in this type of situation.
I know a lady who recently left her job ’cause her husband got a better post, and I have a friend who was making mad money but his co-workers were driving him crazy, so he left. Sometimes you have to look out for yourself in more ways than just paying bills.
As much as people like to think they’ve got it all figured out, they don’t know every situation. So everyone needs to shut it with the money-grubbing digs.
