How To Quit Your Job – Gracefully
Congratulations! After months of searching you finally found the perfect job. During the interview process you felt a connection with your future boss and the feeling was mutual. Now comes the not so fun part of saying goodbye to your current employer.
Even if your boss is the devil incarnate you should do your best to leave on good terms. You never know when you’ll need a recommendation or when your paths may cross again. Here are six ways to ensure you’ll leave with your reputation intact.
Tell your boss first
No matter what your relationship has been with your boss always tell him or her you are leaving before you tell your coworkers. You don’t want your boss to hear about your new job though the rumor mill. It will only serve to make you look bad. Many industries are smaller than you think and you never know who knows who. Your current boss may be friends with a future employer.
