    Post 10 Tips..to resign profesionally

    Resigning at your new job and getting a better offer from a new job are joy and excitement.There just 1 catch !...You have built a wonderful relationship with the employer and collegues that you spend more time with during the day as with your family.

    You built a major relationship with your collegues,social events (taking a beer or two or emotional moments when you get a sharing shoulder from a person you always share your lunch box with.Or maybe you experience a hated moment where you face jealousy and ...a environment where you, do a great job,but no acknowledgement was given,or increase.

    Staff often admit they’re nervous about making the departure announcement. They’re afraid the boss will be angry. They feel guilty about the work they’re leaving behind. Maybe someone else will just replace their job,and do it better.Often people attach a emotional value to a job.

    Staff doubt how to resign gracefully yet still protect their own longer-term career interests. They suspect their departure style will influence their careers for a long time,

    Here are the guidelines to making resigning professionaly like 1..2..3

    Give the correct amount of notice required by your company’s written policy.Sometimes people feel sorry for their former colleagues. So they stick around an extra week (or even an extra month). Inevitably, they begin to feel like a fifth wheel. Nearly everyone says, “Next time I’m leaving right away!”

    After you leave, do not accept any job-related calls from your company unless you have a written consulting contract.Stick with your decision and keep your eye on your goal.

    Study your current and future company policies regarding disclosures and no-compete agreements.

    Resign to your boss in person, if at all possible,to phone is 2nd best.Tell him/she first of your decision,except your wive/partner/family.


    Expect your boss to be professional,Good bosses are happy to see they employees make a career step in life.Other bosses still want to show their authority.

    Thank your boss and your coworkers,even if you don't like them at all and can’t wait to leave.You will have the benefit of strong references and that last moment leave of you,will always create a picture of who you was.Often bosses see the potential of employees when they close the door,leaving the office the last moment.

    Decline a counter-offer,you have a choice.

    Treat the exit interview as a business formality and be positive and graceful,you never know where your comments will turn up.

    Resist entreaties to share the details of your future position with anyone and the financial situation.Often colleagues want information on your future job salary.

    Focus on your new opportunity – not your past experience.Your first day at your new job can be a real eye opener.Also read my other article...A broken heart is like a window once it's damage it can't be repair

    You're not kidding The world is getting smaller all the time nowadays.

    Be nice, be professional, don't burn bridges and at least you've done your part.

    Good article, Gino
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
