What's the difference between resign job and quit job?


One of my English teacher taught me that I can say ‘quit job’,but one of my friends told me that I have to say ‘resign job’. Could you tell me what’s the difference between them if possible. Many thanks!

By the way,please correct my mistakes if possible.


Hi Maggie

First of all you need something in front of the word ‘job’ (article, possessive pronoun, demonstrative pronoun, etc.). In addition, I would definitely use the word ‘from’ after ‘resign’.

Here are some sample sentences:

I quit my job yesterday.
I resigned from my job yesterday.
I resigned yesterday.

Basically, using the word ‘quit’ sounds less formal than using the word ‘resigned’.
