FutureRosas :  Why wouldn’t you stay at your current job if you only moved 15 miles away?  I did the reverse commute (from city to suburbs) and that was 35 miles one way.

I wouldn’t just quit.  It’s much easier to find a job while you’re already employed.

At least where I live, because most people have to commute some distance, employers would give you the side eye if you told them you quit over a 15 mile commute.

I wouldn’t quit your job until you have a new job.

Find a new job before you quit your old one. Much harder to find work when you aren’t working.

15 miles is not that far, especially for (what sounds like) a pretty decent job. If you’re unhappy with the commute, I would try to look while you’re still employed. Why does your Fiance want you to change jobs anyway?

It is never, ever easier to find a job when you’re unemployed. 

If you don’t read the Ask A Manager blog, you should. She dispells a lot of job searching myths and has awesome tips on the job hunt process and workplace dynamics.

FutureRosas :  I commute about 10 miles one way, which means a 20 mile commute in total to work.  And honestly I dont’ see it as a bad thing at all.

A decent boss isn’t so easy to find.  It’s definitely something to appreciate and might outweigh a drive. I know for me it would.

I would keep your current job while you look for something else for sure! Have you thought of having a little side hustle to earn some extra money, and create a “Plan B” ? I’m a Rodan and Fields consultant. You can EASILY make $500/month with very minimal hours/effort. You could make WAY more with a few more hours. I’d LOVE to chat with you about my experience if you’re interested at all! You can message me on here or email me ([email protected])  🙂
