If you aren’t happy with your job and you can afford to not have income for some period of time, possibly a lengthy period of time, then I would move on. When your next employer asks, you can explain that it just wasn’t the right career path for you. I think the biggest thing here comes down to $$ and making sure you’re going to be financially stable while looking for a new position.

I think if you have a plan of how to take care of yourself and approach your job seach while unemployed then it’s really not a problem to quit your job and go looking (in that order).  Otherwise not really a good idea.

The saying about it’s easier to get a job when you’re already employed, it’s mentally and financially easier. Mentally easier because you have something to do all day so you’re not wondering why no employers are calling you back.  But if you can’t afford to continue in your current job then I don’t think you can afford to be unemployed. It sounds like you just don’t like your job.

I quit my job, and traveled around the world for 8 months with my husband.

It took me 2 weeks to get a job offer when I started looking.

I think you’ll be fine!
