Leaving your job. We all have reasons for doing it. Something may have been promised to you that never panned out. Maybe it was something that started out small, but eventually grew and you decided it was something you did not want to handle any longer. Nick Schneider is back in The Doctor’s Life Podcast studios with the top four reasons for leaving your job. All episodes of The Doctor’s Life Podcast are available here, iTunes, and on SoundCloud. If you have an Android device, you can download a podcast player (I recommend Podcast Addict), and it will pull from iTunes. Make sure to subscribe and you will be the first to get new episodes of The Doctor’s Life Podcast.
