Resigning Gracefully

Do It With Class

Congratulations! You’ve landed the job!

Now you are faced with the delicate challenge of resigning from your current employer, and saying good-bye to friends and colleagues.

Your recruiter will help you draft your resignation 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 your former employer has given you.

This is a highly emotional time. You will more than likely receive a counter offer from your current employer. Our experience is that candidates who do not accept counter offers are respected more by their employers and colleagues. As a result they do not burn any bridges for the future.

Be careful not to get lured into any discussions other than your resignation, how they want to handle your final two weeks and the transition of your current duties, responsibilities and projects.
