    My spouse is also in the same company, so for the sake of the company/company policy/secrey purposes, thou shall sacrifice oneself to leave such haven premises...

    some suggestions:

    1. for personal reasons
    2. found greener pastures
    3. migrating to Iceland because of the SARs outbreak

    anyway, to be serious, just saying that you are leaving for personal reasons will be good enough. unless your superior is very nosy.

    or

    "Boss, U stink...."

    cannot change job too often... it doesn't reflect well upon yourself. and generally you're more employable if you have many years of experience doing the same ol' boring thing

    If you got a good reason for leaving the previous job, then it's ok.

    My first job involved working in a primary school (no, I am not a teacher).

    And Kids who come up to you with "Cher, Cher...he beat me..."

    After 3 months, I was out.
    Many people told me to wait for at least a year, cause empolyers will not hire someone who has worked less than 3 months in his first job. But I decided it was enough.

    I think the environment (being the school, the kids, the teachers..etc) did not agree with me.
    (no offence to all the those in the teaching profession)

    After 15+ years of schools and teachers, I did not want to be in one for my working life.

    Though it felt strange to have teachers treating you like a colleague instead of a student for a change.

    I just told me next empolyer, I did not like a school environment and wanted a change.

    it's not so much a question of loyalty... rather it's making your working profile look more stable. trust me, you don't want to look like someone who job-hops in the eyes of the person interviewing you.

    That's EXACTLY the plot in the movie "The Secret to My Success" played by Michael J. Fox. In this case, the "boss" was his uncle.

    An old show repeated many many times.

    Actually it does.

    Many top CEOs have served in their rival companies before being head-hunted.

    Mine too.

    And my company will keep repeating... "You all are considered lucky to have a job you know. and the company has not cut your pay."
