Is it time to have that awkward conversation with your manager?
The one where you tell them it’s time for you to find a job opportunity?
We have a guide on quitting your job properly, AND we also have a plethora of job opportunities.
Are you sure?
One of the worst things you can do is send in your resignation letter and then change your mind. Before you let your employer know you plan to put in your two-week notice, make sure you are 100 percent sure you want to leave.
Here are a few questions you should ask yourself before quitting:
- Why do you want to quit your job?
- Do you have another stable source of income arranged?
- Will your new work environment support your career advancement?
Give appropriate notice
If you have an employment contract that states how much of a notice you should give, we recommend you abide by that. Otherwise, the standard notice is two weeks.
Write a Resignation Letter
A well-written resignation letter can help you maintain a positive relationship with your previous employer while also paving the way to move forward.
In your resignation letter, you should include the current date, the date of your last day of work, and your appreciation for the time you had with the company.
Thebalancecareers.com offers a great example of how to format and write your resignation letter correctly.
