Job Search Tip: Resigning

August 1st, 2011 | Job Search | No Comments »

You’ve taken plenty of advice for going about finding and a securing a brand new job, but now the time is here to resign from your old position.

Make sure you write a resignation letter, thanking your employer for the experience and offering to help them find or train a new employee. Try to avoid being negative, so that you can leave on good terms. It is often a good idea to provide both your immediate boss and the HR department with a copy of your resignation letter, so there is no miscommunication.

Feel free to ask for a reference if your relationship with the employer is good, and ask about the details of employee benefits that will be ended upon your resignation.
