5 inventive ways to quit your job

Deciding to leave your job for greener pastures is a big decision, and it can mean weighing up the pros and cons. Going the standard, formal resignation route can be a little boring, so we’ve put together a handy list of the most inventive ways to quit your job.

  • Spicing up your letter of resignation is a simple, yet effective, way to quit in style. You can tailor the letter to the workplace, manager and yourself. Adding a little humour can take the edge off an unexpected resignation, and it’s certainly an opportunity to say everything you’ve always wanted!
  • Music is the ultimate medium, so why not showcase your hidden talents with song and dance? Queen’s I Want to Break Free or Craig David’s Walking Away speak volumes – or you could go one step further and write your own song. At least you can add ‘singer/songwriter’ to your resumé…
  • Presenting your soon-to-be ex-boss with a ‘sorry for your loss’ card is the perfect way to let them know what they're missing out on!
  • Show off your flair for the dramatic by reenacting a famous movie scene. Click here for some cinematic inspiration. 
  • One of the most inventive ways to quit your job is through the use of food. Use corporate catering to appeal to the sweet-tooths in the office and quit with a cake, cookies, or cupcakes – or for a savoury twist, pizza. Spelling out your message nice and clearly is the way to go!
