Most common types of 10 tips to resign your job with professionalism and pride
Congratulations! You just got an offer for a great new job. There is only one catch. You have to say goodbye to your current employer. Maybe you loved your job and you are in for an emotional goodbye. Or maybe you hated every minute and counted down the days to the last time out. Clients often admit that they are nervous about announcing a departure. They are afraid the boss will be angry. They feel guilty about the work they leave behind. Maybe someone else has to take care of this loose for a while. But clients are also wondering how to gracefully quit while protecting their long-term professional interests. They suspect that their departure style will affect their careers for a long time, they are right. Here are some tips on how to move to the next position with grace and style.
11 Tips to Resign your Job
- Give the appropriate amount of notice according to your company’s written policy. Often my clients feel sorry for their former colleagues. So they stick to an extra week (or even an extra month). They inevitably begin to feel like a fifth wheel. Almost everyone says, “Next time I’m leaving right now!”
- When you leave, do not take any work-related calls from your company unless you have a written consulting agreement. Your boss required two weeks’ notice – but belatedly realized he needed four weeks for a smooth transition. Your boss made a business decision to require two weeks’ notice. When it does convert, it has to accept the cost just as it would accept the cost of late payment to the supplier. If your company needs additional help, offer a job as a paid consultant with a contract. But get everything in writing and make sure your new job becomes your number one priority
- Review the company’s current and future disclosure and nondisclosure policies. Some companies are highly reserved with their processes and employees. After you resign, you may need to leave your workplace immediately. Or your new company may ask you not to work for your former employer, even part-time.
- If possible, quit in person with the boss. The phone is in second place. And tell your boss before telling anyone else – even your best friend or golf buddy.
- Expect your boss to be professional. Clients are often afraid of the boss’s reaction. However, bosses are rarely taken by surprise. Good bosses are happy to see their employees moving forward. Thank her for the learning opportunity that led to your newest and greatest career move.
- Thank your boss and coworkers even if you hate them all and can’t wait to leave. You can look at them more fondly through the fog of memories than the glow of office lighting. You can meet them at conventions and networking groups. And most likely you will benefit from strong references and goodwill. Decline Counter Offer. Recruiters consistently tell me, “Sixty percent of those who accept the counter offer disappeared within six months.” If you choose to stay, get a written employment contract. Exception: Several companies and industries actually request proof of an outside offer before offering you any internal raise or reward. University professors often work in this environment.
- Treat the interview as a business formality, not a therapy session. When the human resources specialist asks why you are leaving, be optimistic and positive: “for a better opportunity.” Talk about how much you loved the company and your work. You never know where your comments will appear, distorted and misinterpreted. 9. Resist requests to share the details of your future position with anyone. From time to time a colleague will try to estimate your salary or other information “so that we can stay competitive in recruiting”. Helping a company recruit isn’t part of your job, and besides, do you really believe it? Details of your future employment should remain confidential, even from your close friends at the company.
- Concentrate on the new opportunity, not your past experiences. When you’re gone, you’ll be history. The same people who loved meeting you for lunch will hardly remember your name a week later. And if you haven’t changed jobs for a while, you might be shocked. Your first day in a new position can really open your eyes!
