As the festive season seems like a distant memory and the doldrums of day to day life weigh down on our shoulders like never before, many people look to a New Year’s resolution to seek out a change.

One of the most common, of course, is finding a new job and unsurprisingly the hunt for the mythical perfect employer is on from 2nd January.

However, if you are one of the lucky ones who find that perfct position at another company, you need to let your current masters know you are on the move. Don’t want to look them in eye? Don’t know what to say? Scaaaaared?

Well fear not yellow belly. A new mobile app has been created by New York employment firm TheLadders to do it for you.

The Quit Your Job app asks users a number of questions to find out why they are leaving and uses the information to form a text message, which is then sent their boss. After the final blow is dealt, it then takes you onto their job search app, in case you have been a tad gung ho and quit before you found a job somewhere else…

The app was jointly developed by the makers of BreakupText, a 99p programme to dump your significant other from the safety of your iPhone.

These apps may be clever ways to sell to the nervous and timid but we are considering our own app over here at Downtime. It is called MAN UP!
