But because of certain reason i am in stress and want to quit job immediately with no job in hand and want to search another after notice period or mean while i get.

Hello Rupeshmalviya,

IRRESPECTIVE of what the exigencies are, it is never recommended to leave one's job WITHOUT having another in-hand--from the individual's end.

While all the reasons you mentioned MAY have a bearing on the logic for this advice/suggestion, there's another important one: it effects the Psyche of the individual, which leads to under-performance during interviews, especially if the gap between leaving the current job & the next one increases by the day.

It's NOT ADVISABLE to build-up such psychological pressure on oneself. While some can handle it & some can't--but that would be known ONLY when the situation comes [most people often begin by ASSUMING they can handle it, but by the time they realize they can't, it would too late after they perform badly in the interviews, which only goes further to a deteriorating performance--sort of 'chain reaction'].

Coming to your present situation, you mentioned that 'you are in a stress'. Suggest find out the cause(s) for your current stress(es) & find solutions for it--at least 'temporary' ones, UNTIL you get another job.

If you wish, you could give the details of your stress in this Forum--some members may be able to suggest how-to-tackle from their experience(s).

All the Best.

Hello Rupesh
I am Apurwa here , and being a recruiter..i know the pros and cons of this situation..Just i recommend you not to leave the present job until you have another confirm job in hand...no matter whatever situation or stress you are undergoing,overcome it ...but if you leave the present job definately it will result adversely
Get the confirmation of another job in hand then leave present job.search it rigorously

Hello Rupesh,
Quiting job without having any other option in hand will only worsen the situation. You never know as to when will you get the next suitable job opportunity and the period of non employment will also result in the gap of employment. It mite also reduce chances of salary hike with the next job.
All this will only add to your current stress, so better you rethink before resigning from your present organization.
Good luck.

If you see 15 advts in newspapers and websites for your profile each day, go ahead... you could land with a good deal. If your friends are looking for people like you through referals, its even better. Else, its a risky bargain.
Though, I feel you should not take in stress to put up with some BS your employer might be subjecting you to. So, if you are being troubled... just walk-out! But learn to handle the situation with maturity. Understand how you will answer 'provocative' questions from head hunters and employers. If you are clear about doing it well, no harm...
Usually, the risks in separation are high and since there is no future employer, you could have difficulty if things turn ugly while leaving.
Nevertheless, its worth respecting your own feelings more than anything else. You might be disadvantaged by the situation, but hey, there is always a possibility of growing faster despite everything said.

Do not quit this job no matter how difficult it is for you to perform, until you get another job. Doing this job till you get another is a lesser pain, than explaining why you have a gap in between. It reflects on your personality negatively.
