​Resigning from your job can be an emotional process, especially leaving friendships with colleagues behind. Regret and doubt can surface just as you're about to resign.

Trust your decision, it's time to follow through!

Follow these Tips:

  • Thank your employer for the opportunities. You can do this in your resignation letter or in person

  • If asked on your reason for resigning, stress the opportunities that lie ahead, and avoid negative comments

  • Ask if there is anything you can do to ease the transition

  • Your goal is to leave on good terms and avoid "burning bridges"

  • A letter of resignation can be given before or after you resigned verbally, but be sure to present one 

  • If asked to extend your last day beyond the notice period, do so only if it works with your new employment
