Resigning Gracefully

Do It With Class

Congratulations! You’ve landed the job! Now you are faced with the challenge of resigning from your current employer and saying good-bye to some old and/or dear friends. Your Strategic Sales Search Recruiter will help you draft your resignation letter. Then, make an appointment with your manager and calmly and concisely explain your decision. Your manager needs to hear that you have made a final decision and are committed to your new employer. Be careful not to get lured into any discussions other than your resignation, how they want to handle your last two (2) weeks and the transition of your current duties, responsibilities and projects.
