Resigning Gracefully

Once you've landed that great next job, you are faced with the delicate challenge of resigning from your current employer without burning bridges, and saying good-bye to friends and colleagues.

Keep your resignation letter factual and to the point. Avoid going into reasons in writing for resigning, but make sure you declare a preferred end-of-employment date or at least a date by when you would like this resolving (usually within a few days of the letter). Then make an appointment with your manager to respectfully explain your decision. Your manager needs to hear that your decision is firm and final, and that you are committed to your new employer. Express appreciation for the opportunities that your former employer has given you, and never use the occasion to vent any frustrations that led you to look elsewhere in the first place. Always make sure you try to leave your current employer on good terms, if for no other reason than they will probably be required as your referees.
