How to Quit a Job Gracefully

quit job

**Note :^^^ Not the way to quit a job gracefully**

It can be just as difficult to leave one job as it can be to find a new one. But with a few tips, you can exit your current job gracefully and even have your former boss still think highly of you.

Make sure that you complete all projects on your plate before your final exit. It’s not fair to dump an overload on co-workers or the person replacing you. “Out of sight, out of mind” might work for you, but by leaving your former boss in a sling, it could come back to bite you down the road. Former bosses have long memories.

When you’ve decided that you need to find a new job, don’t let office gossip break the news to the boss. You should be the one to tell your boss that you’re leaving your position for a new one.

Make sure that you get a good reference if possible – before you leave your present job. You can’t control what’s said about you after you’re gone, but having a positive letter from prior employers can work wonders for your career portfolio.

If you must put it in writing that you’re leaving the company, be very careful what you say and only put positive things in writing. Even if you can’t stand your boss and despise the company, never put that in writing. The bottom line is that you want to do what’s best for you, but going off on a written rant about why you’re leaving is not only unprofessional, but could have unforeseen repercussions.

Lastly, never burn bridges. Always leave a former job on a positive note. You never know who you’ll cross paths with in the future!
