Within 24 hours of the release of Beyoncé’s new song ‘Break my soul’ at the end of June 2022, the search query “how to resign” had jumped by 350%, while “great resignation” had skyrocketed by – wait for it – 1,550%. 

Stories abound across the internet of her latest track giving workers everywhere that last push that they needed to “release” their job, so much so that it has been dubbed “a Great Resignation Anthem”. 

♫ “Now, I just fell in love / And I just quit my job / I'm gonna find new drive / Damn, they work me so damn hard / Work by nine, then off past five / And they work my nerves / That's why I cannot sleep at night / I'm lookin' for motivation / I'm lookin' for a new foundation … Release your anger / Release your mind / Release your job” ♫

The lyrics certainly hit home for anyone struggling with their wellbeing or motivation at work. And it turns out, that’s quite a lot of people: the top five reasons that UK workers quit are lack of motivation, overwork, uncaring management, a poor atmosphere and not enough pay.

If the Queen of Pop has sent you job hunting, we’ve got you covered. This is the ultimate six-step guide to finding a new role that is right for you.
