Defector Part 12: “I Quit!! ” – A Global Epidemic In The Month Of December 5/5 (6)

expat crisis

It’s that time of the year–December when every expat working for a global company considers “quiting”  or “resigning” in order to find another job or start a new career. Stress associated with entering the soon to be 2018  new year  only to continue the same misarable work –is the sleep depriving issue. “To stay, or not to stay?”

But what really happens to “burnt-out”  expats –or even to millions of people around the world who are quite simply. . . very stressed, underpaid, under -appreciated and perhaps.. .completely misunderstood by their bosses.  In one word – “FREEDOM” .   You know, freedom is a life-long mission and philosophy. Life is short, why suffer in silence from a job that increasingly gives you less and less satisfaction–it’s self degredation.

TOP 5 REASON EXPATS AND FOREIGN STUDENTS IN UKRAINE, RUSSIA AND BELARUS QUIT THEIR JOBS:

  1.  LOCAL BOSS DOESNT UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT OF “PAYING ON TIME AND PAYING IN-FULL “
  2.  CULTURAL MISUNDERSTNDINGS OF MASSIVE PROPORTION
  3. YOU ARE NOT INCLUDED OR INVITED TO IMPORTANT MEETINGS WITH TOP MANAGEMENT, BUT YOU MAKE THE COMPANY THE MAJORITY OF THE PROFIT
  4. YOU ARE UNFAIRLY DISCIPLINED HARSHER THAN LOCAL EMPLOYEES WHO MAKE IDENTICAL MISTAKES.
  5.  YOU ARE TALKED TO IN A VERY DISRESPECTFUL MANNER
  6.  AN I WILL ADD ANOTHER ISSUE . . .YOU ARE NOT PROMOTED OR YOUR SALARY HAS NOT CHANGED IN YEARS [ LIKE  5 YEARS ]. BUT THE COMPANY’S PROFITABILITY HAS TRIPPLED.

 

TOP 5 WAYS  UKRAINIAN/RUSSIAN  BOSSES  TRY TO BRIBE YOU TO REMAIN AT YOUR MISERABLE JOB:

  1.  TICKETS TO THE BALET OR THEATER OR SOME CONCERT   [ THAT HE GOT FOR FREE FROM ONE OF HIS OLD TIME FRIENDS; IN OTHERWORS HE SPENT NOT A SINGLE KOPEK OF HIS OWN MONEY]
  2. USE OF HIS SUMMER DACHA [ BASICALLY HIS BOOTY-CALL DACHA, WHERE HE SECRETLY MEETS WITH HIS MANY GIRLFRIENDS WITHOUT HIS WIFE KNOWING]
  3.  GIRLS;  HE SENDS AN ESCORT TO YOUR FLAT OR THE DACHA HE HAS IN THE COUNTRY SIDE. $800 DOLLARS FOR YOUR ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE WITH A GODESS IS  MERE KOPEKS FOR HIM –BUT PAYING $800 DOLLARS MORE IN SALARY  EVERY PAYCHECK  AND TWICE A MONTH FOR YOU IS A PROBLEM.  HOWEVER, THE REAL REASON HE PROVIDES YOU WTH AN ESCORT FROM TIME TO TIME –IS TO KEEP YOU SILENT AND NOT TO TELL HIS REAL WIFE ABOUT HIS UNFAITHFULNESS.
  4.  HE KNOWS THE DIRECTOR OF A CHILDRENS’ SCHOOL OR HAS ENOUGH “BLAT” TO INFLUENCE THE SCHOOL DIRECTOR TO ACCEPT YOUR CHILD FOR STUDIES AHEAD OF OTHER FAMILIES THAT HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR EVER TO GET THEIR CHILD ENROLLED IN A SCHOOL CLOSER TO WHERE THEY LIVE.
  5.  AND THE NUMBER ONE METHOD–HE IS ABLE TO GET YOUR GIRLFRIEND OR WIFE [ OR HUSBAND OR BOYFRIEND] A SMALL JOB IN YOUR COMPANY OR ARRANGE EMPLOYMENT AND “PROPISKA” FOR YOU AND YOUR SIGNIFICANT PARTNER–BECAUSE ONCE AGAIN YOUR BOSS HAS CONNECTIONS WITH THE IMMIGRATION AUTHORITIES.

BUT WHEN THESE BRIBES AND MANIPULATIVE METHODS DO NOT WORK…IT IS HIGH TIME TO LEAVE YOUR JOB AND START 2018 FRESH AND FREE TO CREATE A BETTER WORK-LIFE-BALANCE,

Well, there are two issues you want to consider here: how long it will take you to find another job, and whether it’s going to be a red flag for employers in the future.

I strongly recommend the quote “suffer in silence from a job that increasingly gives you less and less satisfaction–it’s self degredation.” In this century

I have never been in that epic “I quit moment.” Recently, I quit from a job after working for 11 days. The boss wanted to send me on a remote site, but I did not want to go. I could have said “I quit” but I did not. I stopped going to my workplace.

People hate to resign without another job lined up. Not just because employers prefer to hire people who are working, but also because it feels like failure. It seems as if you “couldn’t take it.”
