The Doctor’s Life Podcast Episode 015- Four Reasons For Leaving A Job

Leaving your current 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.

One of the most common questions you will be asked in an interview is, “Why do you want to leave your current job?” Consider the implications of answering this question in the best possible light. There are many common reasons that a person may leave their current job for another.  Nick Schneider is back in The Doctor’s Life Podcast studios with the top four reasons for leaving your current job.

All episodes of The Doctor’s Life Podcast are available on iTunes, and on SoundCloud.

Top four reasons given for leaving your current job:

1). Location
Lack of familiarity with Real Estate

2). Hours/Flexibility
Lack of vacation (especially Intl travel)
Time with Children
Call schedule

3). Type of Medicine Practiced
Are you practicing in your specialty?
Academic responsibilities
Are you excited to see your patients everyday?

4). Compensation
Most leave because they feel stuck
No upward trajectory
Change in Health System and contracts

Listen to Nick Schneider discuss this and more on episode 15.
