Resigning graciously

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.

We will help you throughout this process. 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 that your former employer has given you.

Be careful not to get lured into any discussions other than your resignation. However, be prepared to discuss how you will assist in managing the transition of your current responsibilities and projects.
