Resigning from a Job

Before you leave YOUR Job: 

  1. It is best to have another job before you leave the one you have (unless you can afford to be unemployed)

  2. Always try to leave your job on a good note. You want this person as a reference for other future jobs. YOu may ask for a letter of recommendation if a positive relationship exists.

  3. It is standard to give an employer two weeks notice before your last day of work.

  4. Writing a letter to your employer stating your last day and thanking them for the chance to work there is highly recommended.

  5. Try to finish up any projects before you leave.

  6. Offer to help find or at least train your replacement.
