It is important to know when a job and its employee aren’t a good fit. Sometimes the employer ends the relationship and an employee can collect unemployment. There are other times in which an employee chooses to take the matter into their own hands even though they'll be walking away from free unemployment income.

Why Employees Resign

The phrase ‘not a good fit’ comes into play often when either side of an employment situation needs to end, but what could that mean?


Boredom - the polite terms are: needing more of a challenge, or feeling uninspired.

Funds - properly phrased: looking for a higher salary. Salary analysis may behoove companies looking to retain good employees.

Boss Sucks - a.k.a. Needing a better management relationship. Many great employees are lost because they can’t work within the management style.

Going Nowhere Fast - or formally: job growth and career advancement. If a job has no upward mobility prospects, an employee may choose to find a job that does.

Wanderlust - need to relocate. It could be something positive or negative, but if a job isn’t able to be performed remotely, then living somewhere else necessitates a move.

Better Bennies - properly said as: workplace policies. Needing health insurance, vacation, and sick leave is something important to people.

Fingers to the Bone - or think of: a better work-life balance. If a job is taking more resi the employee is getting, they may bail.

Insecurity - better known as: will the job be here in a year? Plenty of places are cutting back, or folding under.
