    Hi everyone,

    I've found a part-time job ad online that pays more than what I'm currently earning and has better hours that suit me more. The issue I'm having is that I haven't yet handed in a notice of leave letter as I haven't yet secured another job. I just don't know what to put down as the reason why I wish to leave. Do I tell the truth? If so, how do I phrase it? Also, other jobs apps are asking why I want to leave my current job and I'm facing the same dilemma there too. This is just part-time work I'm doing on the weekends to help with uni costs. If anyone has any tips that would be fantastic!

    Thanks guys!!

    Fishy as in phishing.

    You leave a job by not bothering to do it anymore. You should tell your employer in advance if you do this, but people tend not to for low end schitt jobs.

    OK well in your resignation letter you don't need to put anything about why you're leaving. You can just put 'thank you for the opportunities, I've enjoyed working here' type stuff. If you're directly asked or really want to explain you can either make an excuse e.g. 'I need to concentrate on my studies' or you can tell the truth 'I've been offered a job which pays more/is better hours etc' - no one is going to think less of you for taking a better paid job, everyone will understand.

    As far as why you want to leave your current job you really want to find a reason you want to work for that specific company or in that specific job role rather than bashing your current employer.
