This Fun and Insightful Flowchart Will Tell You If You Should Quit Your Job

If you're trying to decide whether or not to quit your job, you're not alone. Based on data from 2014, the U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics said that young people only stay at a job for an average of three years.

But don't worry, this flowchart from the BBC designed by graphic artist Julio Rivera is here to help. Do you remember the "Choose Your Own Adventure" Books?

It's sort of like that except your entire life is on the line. Let's do this! We'll see you at the other end.

Should I Quit?

Oh hey! How did you do?

You may have noticed that inevitably the flow chart ends up at "You Should Go Good Luck!"

There are only three conclusions.

1. You should go!

2. You should wait until you have an offer or six months of savings and then quit.

3. You should stay, but then again you *did* click on this, so maybe you should quit after all?

The flow chart apparently suggests that if you're thinking about leaving you probably have a good reason to go, whether it's because of an unfulfilled dream or a bad work situation. The important thing to realize is that you don't want to suddenly quit and put yourself in a dangerous financial position. The average job search takes at least six months, so if you don't have a job offer, make sure you have at least six months of salary before you quit, according to Forbes. Good luck!
