Speaking Point: There are many reasons why you may need to resign from your job.
Whether you found a different job or just can't stand the job you currently have, there is definitely a right path to giving your resignation.
Here are some tips on how to resign from your job:
Speaking Point: 1. Always give your current employer two weeks’ notice and do it in writing. Often, you may be asked to leave that day, depending on the company or type of job you have, but you always need to offer your employer the opportunity to have you around for a couple of weeks while they find your replacement or have you train your replacement.
Speaking Point: 2. Your letter of resignation should be short and sweet, to the point, stating your intention to resign and the proposed date of your final day of work. Remember, a resignation letter is NOT an exit interview and is not the time or place to be negative or explain why you are leaving.
Speaking Point: 3. Hand-deliver your letter to your supervisor/boss in a private meeting and tell them verbally what the letter says in writing. Remember to be prepared to leave that day, if asked. It's nothing personal. Many companies have that policy these days.
Speaking Point: 4. Be positive! You never know where and when your employment paths may cross again with your supervisor and how you deliver yourself in this moment will be one of the last impressions they have of you.
Speaking Point: 5. Be humble! No matter what history you have with your employer, positive or negative, be grateful for the opportunity and experience you were given by this company. Wish them well and thank them respectfully.
Speaking Point: One last thing to remember...every experience we say goodbye to, opens the opportunity to say hello another. Be ready to say goodbye and then get ready to say hello!
