Have A Good Reason For Leaving

  • Before jumping off from the ship it is important to take the necessary precautions and lay out the possible path you've been offered or plan on taking.
  • If you received another job offer, make sure that you have it in writing (with a confirmed salary and benefits package) to avoid embarrassment if and when the offer is rescinded.
  • If the reason you're leaving can be addressed with a supervisor, try bringing it to their attention.
  • Most importantly, before leaving make sure everything on your end is settled -- such as finances or pending job applications.

Give Formal and Sufficient Notice To Your Employer

Giving out a formal notice to your employer is a considered standard and a courtesy Letting them know why you're leaving opens up an opportunity for them to learn. A two weeks notice benefits both you and the employer.

It gives them time to scour candidates for the position and it gives you enough time to tie any loose ends and hand over any projects that you were working on to someone else. This will make your exit less dramatic and well appreciated.

Stay Professional

It's important to stay professional in all interactions with your current employer because there are some companies who call them up and ask about your character.

Following protocol

Schedule a time with your supervisor to break the news. Be aware that sharing the news with the office grapevine might cause the news to leak prematurely before you formally give notice.

It's best to have important conversations in person. Make sure you meet all exit notice, confidentiality, non-compete and other guidelines that are required.

The big problem with contingent

They’re very risky for the applicant. Even if you don't resign from your job before the reference check, you will have to tell your boss you are on the verge of leaving. So either way, you’d be in a vulnerable position with your security in your current job at risk before your offer is final.

As a candidate, one option is to push back on the contingency, explain it could jeopardize your current job, and offer up plentiful other references.

Understand the point of a cover letter

When writing a cover letter it is important to understand the significance of it. One's cover letter should go beyond their work history and must include the things that cannot be found in a resume.

It should include personal traits, work habits, inter and intrapersonal skills, achievements, and even one's enthusiasm for the job.

Your cover letter is like a simple introduction of who you are and what makes you a strong candidate for the company.
