    out of a sudden (in) doing something

    Dear teachers,

    Tom wants to change his job suddenly.
    Is it also correct if I change the sentences in this way:

    1. Tom out of a sudden wants to change his job.
    2. It surprised us because of Tom out of sudden in changing his job.
    (I am not sure whether I should add the preposition 'in' after out of sudden insentence 2.)

    Please help teachers.


    Thank you.

    Kitty

    "all of a sudden" is the expression. No, "in" is not correct.
