How to leave your Job

How To Leave Your Job Right

So, today is Friday - the last day of a week. Or maybe it's the last day of a month as well?  Most often, people choose such dates (the end of a week, month or season) for leaving their current jobs. And here we want to tell how to make the process of your quit right.
Reasons for your dismissal can be very different:
ñ  moving to another place of living
ñ  a child's birth
ñ  a person's fatigue
ñ  a decision to start your own business
ñ  problems at your current job (you can't do your duties, you have problems with your colleagues, a  boss decides to fire you, etc.)

Whatever your case was, your main task is to leave with dignity. This refers to the completion of all tasks before your dismissal, their transfer to another employee,  passing your equipment to an administrator, and your business farewell to colleagues. Never spend your last days at work carelessly, don't say anything bad about your boss or colleagues, etc. The worst thing is to do nasty things to your employer, such as changing server settings, deleting the information you have worked with, or taking some equipment with you. The world is small, so your spotless reputation and good relations with former colleagues will help you more than once in the future. By the way, your colleagues and boss will give you a good recommendation if you behave yourself professionally at dismissal.

So, you've decide to leave:

If you decided to leave your job, the first person to know about it should be your boss. Usually, you are required to notify the employer about your dismissal no later than two weeks prior to the date you leave. But very often these terms will depend on many factors of course:

ñ  the company you work at
ñ  its politics as for employees
ñ  your boss's character
ñ  your duties' nuances

Certainly, the ideal option appears when you inform about your dismissal in advance, check a plan to transfer your work to another person, and dismiss with a good mood after finishing all those agreements. However, this option is not always possible in practice, so we would like to give you two pieces of advice here:

The first one: if you think of dismissal and start looking for a new job, try to maintain and finish all existing projects as fast as you can, and prepare all work to pass.

The second one: remember that you should leave with dignity.

You are asked to stay:

If you are asked to stay, just think about the reasons why you decided to dismiss. Sometimes it happens when a valued employee who suddenly decided to leave a job is offered a promotion, a bigger salary, or some other benefits. So, it's necessary to pay attention to the following points here:

1.      Will such a proposal remove a real reason of your dismissal?
2.      How will your colleagues accept the fact you decided to dismiss but still continue working?

This is the very reason why we recommend you to start talking about your possible dismissal with your boss first,  as the chances are that you'll solve all problems during this conversation. However, remember that if you get some benefits under a threat of dismissal, your second attempt to succeed in such a way will not work anymore. Moreover, there are no reasons to do that.

If you are not offered to eliminate the true reason for your dismissal (for example, you do not like the atmosphere in the team, and you are offered a salary increase), you should stay firm in your decision - indecisive and undecided people are not appreciated much.

So, that is it. Remember that a dismissal is a natural process, and nothing terrible happens here. There is no need to worry about it and over-dramatize the situation. Neither your life nor the life of the company end with your dismissal. Finish all things at work quietly, take a break and continue your way forward to new achievements!
