Do you need the money? If so, dont quit.

Honestly, I would wait until just before the move to quit. Then you can say you quit for the move instead of “I was annoyed by my job” or coming up with another reason. A move would seem more legit to an employer than being a flaky employee.

Just my thoughts as some who runs an organization and does hiring.

Personally I’d stick it out — two months isn’t that long to hang on, and it looks better on the resume.

That said, if your work environment is extremely toxic, I think mental health is the top priority.

Pyboo15:  “if I don’t find a fantastic full time job right away” — Most people don’t find a fantastic full time job right away. If you limit yourself to jobs that are strictly in your field, or full time, or fantastic, you might be unemployed for a long time. It kind of sounds like you’d be ok with that, so if that works for you and your guy that’s your business. But if you want to be an independent adult, you might have to take a less-than-fantastic job until a dreamier one comes along.

Mrs.Sugabee2003:  I agree.  It’s tempting to quit earlier, but I’d hate having no income for months.  Who knows how long it’ll take you to find a job where you’re moving.  The fact that you can’t find anything full time even listed would keep me from quitting were I in your shoes.

Stick it out. 

And apply for a part-time position in the new state if that’s all there is right now. It’s 10x easier to get a job when you have a hjob and it’s easier to network.
