I recently got a new job and I’ve had two days of training and I don’t like it. It seems like it’s going to be overwhelming. I want to send a text message to the manager saying I don’t feel like the position is a good fit. What exactly should I say in the message? I want to be nice about it
Hello, manager, I want to resign. After two days of training, I learned a lot, and I also agree with the company’s culture and products. But I feel that this job is not suitable for me. You know, if I always have this idea in my heart, then I won't be very efficient. I hope you understand. Thank you.
Lat's phrasing is somewhat acceptable, albeit very noticeably sycophantic what with all of two days worth of learning.
In my opinion, this whole approach is a grievous strategic error. Unless it's some remote work, you don't quit via text, it's disrespectful. Unless you really hate the whole place (which, given the likely amount of effort spent to be accepted, should not be the case) and wish to never work there again, you don't quit after two days. It gives you the reputation of one who is unmotivated, otiose. Even if you are, bluff.
Two days is insufficient time to determine for sure whether any job will be overwhelming. Intellectual adaptation, even to a sharp mind, is measured in weeks. Physical, varies more. However, depending on how your manager seems, you might want to share your concerns with them (in a while). If they're any good at their job, and your demeanour is adequate, they may relocate you to a more suitable position. Or let you go.
Tldr Don't be a quitter.
Discuss this directly with your manager.............NO messaging and NO texting. Let the manager know how you feel and then allow the manager to either help you or you can quit. A person should always give a job 30-90 days (normal probation period) to know if the job is a good fit or not.
