I am about to get fired for not meeting my quota. I am considering

Resolved Question:

I am about to get fired for not meeting my quota. I am considering giving my 2 week notice so that I get a least 2 weeks of salary and benefits. Does it make a difference?

If you resign you wont get unemployment benefits. That is a factor to consider. You may also not get fired and perhaps you can negotiate to remain on at different rate/probation etc.

Thanks, but

1) I was told that if I get fired I would probably not qualify for unemployment benefits. I was told that to quit under pressure and to get fired both are a throw of the dice. Only laid off qualifies

2) No other position avaialble so this is it

1. It would be true if the employer contests your application, but harder to win when you resign
2. I see. I just dont see the advantage of resigning, and you can search for another position while still there/
