PENNSYLVANIA, USA — Millions of Americans are saying, 'I quit.'

Following the pandemic, employees are reassessing what they want out of a job. 

"Due to the pandemic, it appears many young professionals are seeking a better work-life balance," Tracy Burke with Conrad Siegel said. 

Whatever is causing you to want to quit your job, Burke says there's some important things you should think about before putting in your resignation.

"We would encourage everyone to consider that financial impact when deciding to move to or leave any job," Burke said.
