Help me quit my job!
Posted 09 March 2009 - 01:18 PM
Sorry for the rant. I just don't know how to tell them without dwelling too long. She has a stressful job (stock market) but I really can't wait for that to get better. I need to get better. Do I keep it short and sweet "Since my mc I just don't feel I'm caring for him as best as I am able" Or do I say all the reasons why. And is the time frame I'm giving them good? Acck I hate leaving nanny jobs. I've never quit or been fired so this is new. Please help!

i remember you had to quit when you were moving but that was totally different, you had a nice easy ready-made excuse to tell that family.
if i were you i would just be honest, but dont feel like you have to go into too much detail with them, your reasons should be good enough. i wouldnt mention the bad parts about your hire there, just keep it to the personal stuff and let them work it out.
i bet they will appreciate that you need to take care of yourself before someone elses child, and hopefully that will make it easier on you.
keep us updated!

Also could you tell them that ideally you'd like to be done in 3 weeks, however you don't want to leave them high and dry and that if they dont' ahve anyone by then you can fill in when needed

As far as the time you're leaving them - I like what Meagan said. Tell them the date you'd like to leave, but also tell them you understand this is a tough situation and offer to help them find someone else and/or fill in if absolutely necessary until everybody gets their feet on the ground.

I would do what the girls have said.
Tell them you have a lot going on right now and have decided to take a break from working for a while. Let them know your last day and that you will be on the look out for someone for them to hire and if you find someone you will send them their way. You don't have to give them the details. Be strong for yourself. You will be in a much better place if you do this.

If you have someone who is trust worthy and available that you would recommend, then great! Ask that person if it's ok for you to refer the family you take care of to them and then give the family the contact information.
If you don't have anyone to refer, it's not really your job to find a replacement. It's nice if you want to do that (especially if you're close to the family), but unless you're in an employment contract, you don't have a professional obligation to do so. However, the better the situation you leave this family in, the more likely you'll be able to use them on your resume as a positive reference. Plus it's nice to help them out, considering that the reason why you're leaving is not because of something they did.
I am very sorry for your loss and I hope the best for your physical and emotional recovery. You're right to put you and your DH first, because you can't be very good to others if you're not good to you.
