How to Quit Your Job in the Great Post-Pandemic Resignation Boom
If you’re ready to leave, here are some tips on engineering a smooth exit.

By Arianne Cohen
Ready to say adios to your job? You’re not alone. “The great resignation is coming,” says Anthony Klotz, an associate professor of management at Texas A&M University who’s studied the exits of hundreds of workers. “When there’s uncertainty, people tend to stay put, so there are pent-up resignations that didn’t happen over the past year.” The numbers are multiplied, he says, by the many pandemic-related epiphanies—about family time, remote work, commuting, passion projects, life and death, and what it all means—that can make people turn their back on the 9-to-5 office grind.

The “Great Resignation,” a phrase you’ve likely been hearing everywhere, was coined by Professor Anthony Klotz at Texas A&M. He argues that as we transition to the post-pandemic workplace, people would rather vacate their jobs than just resume the “old normal” of slogging to the office every day.
