How to Resign the Correct Way
The termination of a job can be very difficult for many people. You’re leaving an environment where you’ve probably made friends with an environment where you need to start again.
There are right and wrong ways to step down from your job. Improper action can lead to negative feelings between you and your employer, which should be avoided, especially if you need a hint from them in the future. On the other hand, adhering to the correct notice etiquette can make a major contribution to the lasting success of your personal and professional development.
At TipTopJob, we’d like to give you some practical advice to make termination as painless and easy as possible, and to let you know about your rights and obligations to your employer and their duties.
In order to rule out possible misunderstandings, always submit your resignation in writing. Your typewritten letter should be brief, but direct and to the point. It should include a resignation statement, a thank you for the opportunity to work for the company, a definitive employment appointment, and a cooperative statement expressing your helpfulness during the transition period prior to your last working days.
Take some time to think about what you want to say before you tell them orally. It is always best to be polite and polite, even if you “hate” the person. During your withdrawal meeting, you should be prepared for any kind of reaction, such as a handshake to congratulation or even an expression of anger. Regardless of the reaction, you must remain calm, professional and positive. You have done nothing wrong!
Why are you going?
One potential problem area is the inevitable question of why you are leaving. It is not a good idea to eliminate the mistakes of your manager or the problems of the company. They just leave a bad impression and it shows a lack of professionalism. Staff will also be curious as to why you are leaving. You should tell them exactly what you have said to the company, because everything you say may come back and your employees look loyal and you look like a liar.
Do your best to get there at the last minute, and do not underestimate the importance of your performance in the last few days or weeks. It is a serious mistake to become mentally unemployed while working out your termination !!
If you apply the strategies and techniques described above, you will resign with a high degree of professionalism without breaking any bridges. Your plan is to stay calm, polite, positive and in control at all times.
