8 terrible ways to leave your job

Culture
Bored at work? Frustrated with colleagues? Feeling undervalued? If you're ready to burn all your bridges, here are eight terrible ways that tech can help you quit in a blaze of glory. One, start asking your Twitter and Facebook friends about job openings in your field, despite the fact that your co-workers and Fox, follow you on social network. Two, ask your boss to go to LinkedIn and endorse you as an able employee. Three, post compromising photos from your company parties to instagram. There's no time like the present. Four, complain to your colleague in an email about all the ways you hate your job. And accidentally CC your entire company. Five, on your giant desk monitor, actively search Craigslist, monster, and glass door for a new job. Don't even bother trying to tilt or block the screen. Six, record a video about why you hate your job and upload it to YouTube for all the world to see. Earn bonus points for alerting the press or making it go viral. Seven. Auction off your old work phone or laptop, that your company loaned you ages ago, on Ebay. They probably don't remember giving you that stuff anyway. Eight, on your way out, Periscope, or otherwise live stream your self packing up your desk and giving the middle finger, striding confidently through those doors for the very last time. Follow these eight simple tips, and we're sure your former colleagues will scowl about you warmly for months to come. Oh, and when you do land that perfect new job, don't forget to gloat.
