We have a few different ways in English to talk about when you leave a job. Let’s look at those words today!

 

When you choose to leave a job, you quit the job. You can say

  • I quit my job last week. Not, I retired from my job last week (see below)
  • I quit working for the bank.

You can also use resign from, which is a more formal way of saying quit

  • I resigned from my job last week.
  • I resigned from the bank.

When your company chooses to end your employment, you can get fired if you do something wrong or get laid off if the company’s financial situation is not good

  • Joe got fired because he came to work late too many times
  • Jenny got laid off because the company had a hard time in this bad economy,

When you stop working around age 60 or 65, you retire.  The condition is called retirement.

  • Brad retired from the bank and now lives in Florida
  • My grandfather is enjoying is retirement and new life in Southern California.

What do you want to do when you retire? Feel free to leave a comment here.
