    Default Fired or Quitting, What's Worst?

    Like which one is one that you do not want other employeers to know about? Like getting fired is something you have to write on job applications and it can carry a negative stigma because most people are fired for a failure on their part. But quitting can be done for a number of reasons that can easily be understandable. But quitting a job can also seem lazy and has it's own negative stigma in some respects.

    So if I dislike a job, should I be rude as I want till I'm fired, or should I just quit?

    Quit. Don't leave on a sour note over preferences. That's my immediate reaction.

    Fired is totally worse.

    I've quit so many jobs, especially if it's nothing special, nothing extraordinary to put on your resume, who cares?

    However, if it's in your chosen field or area of study, I can see why you'd have more trepidation about quitting.

    Still looks better than being fired, though you can collect unemployment for being fired.

    Quitting is definitely the way to go.

    As you yourself say in the OP, there are many valid reasons for a person to quit. Sure, it's up to your future employer to decipher whether he believes your reason for quitting, or whatever, but it's pretty common for people to leave a job even when on excellent terms with their workers - simply because they are wanting to move in a different direction.

    I don't see how there's any debate over what's "best".... Fired is being forced to leave for failure to do your job properly... Quitting may be frowned upon depending on the circumstances, but it's not being given the boot.

    quitting > fired

    cause quitting is on your terms, you're the one in power. firing is on theirs.

    There is no stigma to quitting if you have a good reason.
