A 27-year-old woman in the United States quit her high-paying job in a TikTok video. She told Fortune magazine that the decision came about after hard thinking during the coronavirus pandemic about her skills and ambitions.
Marisa Mayes worked in the field of medical device sales, which required her to constantly speak to customers and do analytical tasks. Mayes said she liked doing creative work.
“Trying to force myself to do a job like that required so much effort,” Mayes told Fortune. “It took COVID hitting to make me realize I was still unhappy, even in this big fancy job.”
