Engineering Job

Are the things that make you want to quit permanent frustrations?

There can be situations in your engineering workplace that can be shrugged off and not worth pulling the trigger of quitting the engineering job. It might be just be a petty incident, disagreement, or mistake that can be easily forgiven. Take note: there will always be problems encountered anywhere you will work, maybe even bigger than what you are facing right now.

Have you considered taking a break?

Have you saved enough?

Quitting your engineering job would mean you will have no source of income for quite a while, in case you do not realize that.

You still have to pay your monthly bills and maybe have family members to support. This is a great factor since you don’t want to be broke while being unemployed.

Are you comfortable with uncertainty?

This question perhaps hits you so much when there is no engineering job waiting after your resign. Would you be able to not overthink about having no job? Are you sure of the future that lies ahead of you when you quit?
