Resigning Gracefully

Posted on Categories Candidate Tips

 

Congratulations! You’ve landed the job! Now you’re faced with the delicate challenge of resigning from your current employer without burning bridges, and saying good-bye to friends and colleagues. Your hireneXus recruiter will help you draft your resignation letter. Then, you’ll 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’re committed to your new employer.

Express appreciation for the opportunities that your former employer has given you.

Be careful not to get lured into any discussions other than your resignation, such as how your employer wants to handle your final weeks or the transition of your current responsibilities and projects.
