A man took the plunge by quitting his long-standing job of eight years for a new position - only for the job offer to be retracted, leaving him unemployed.

TikToker Migi (@migimigz22) who previously worked for Verizon revealed his challenging employment circumstances in a clip which showed him appearing tearful as he sat in his car.

The over-lay text he wrote on the video explained: "Leaving my job of 8 years for a job that hired me and then retracted the offer after I'm jobless."

Since posting his disappointing news, Migi's TikTok has gone viral with over 123,000 views, along with thousands of likes and hundreds of comments from people.

Migi revealed in the comments that he hadn't signed the paperwork for the new job when he quit his old one and was told his new job offer got rescinded because the company said they were "fully staffed."

Some people in the comments section advised the TikToker not to do this again in the future.

One person wrote: "You should always wait until you have a start date before leaving."

"I usually don’t quit until the last min I even go as far as using my PTO and sick leaves until my new job is secured," another person said.

Someone else added: "Mmmm sketch why would you quit before starting the new job?"

"NEVER leave your old job before physically starting the next… you do not need two weeks notice my love," a fourth person replied.
