What to do if your new job isn’t right for you
Sometimes right the way through the application process, through the interview process and even starting a new job, you will think that a position is right for you and want to get into this job. However, within a week , you may come to realise that the job isn’t all you thought it would be, or that you just aren’t settling in, and aren’t likely to either.
If this is the case then you need to somehow work out how to get out of the job without breaching your contract or making a bad name for yourself within the company or the industry. Here are some of the ways that you can handle this situation.
- Let your employer know. You should sit down with your employer as soon as possible and speak to them about why you don’t feel that you are fitting in, or that the role isn’t right for you. It is far better to have this discussion in person than to simply send a letter of resignation soon after you start.
- Look at your contract. Many jobs will start with a probation period and this is for both you and the employer. If you are on probation you should be able to leave with just a week’s notice without going against your contract or leaving the employer in the lurch.
- Offer to stay longer. Even if contractually you are able to leave right away, as a courtesy you should offer to stay until the position has been filled. Your employer will respect this, even if they don’t ask you to stay.
- Be honest. Try to be as honest as you can about your reasons for wanting to leave so soon. There may be something that your employer can do to either get you to stay, or to ensure that the next person who comes in wants to stick around for longer.
