Are You Ready to Quit? How to Exit a Job Gracefully (And What to do Next)

tampa temporary staffing servicesThere’s no doubt that everyone loves a good “I quit my job” story. Who doesn’t want to stand up and make a memorable speech like Jerry Maguire or tell off a rude customer before grabbing a beer and heading out the door like the JetBlue flight attendant? Exiting our jobs with dramatic flair isn’t in the cards for most of us, though. The father along we are in our careers, the more serious our reasons for wanting to leave our current positions, and the more damage our current employers can do to our future employment.

No, if you have reached a point in your life where you believe your career is not the right choice for you, the words “I quit” are not something you simply throw around. Quitting Orlando jobs gracefully and making the most of your future means avoiding certain pitfalls that can lead to miscommunication, severed network ties, and hurt feelings. Here’s a short breakdown on how to do it right.

Quitting With Grace

  • Talk to Your Employer- Even if your coworkers are your best friends, they should not know the details of your exit before the boss does. Make time to talk to him or her in private; schedule a time and place to talk instead of showing up at their door with the big news.
  • Explain Why- If your employer doesn’t already know why you are quitting, make sure to explain it to them. However, don’t be hurtful or get upset. Now is not the time to complain about how Susie is conspiring against you, nor is it the time to apologize for leaving. Bringing up problems won’t help, and will only leave your boss feeling as if you were ungrateful for the opportunity and rude. Explain that you are leaving to explore other opportunities, and leave it at that. Your employer will understand as long as you remain rational and honest.
  • Provide notice- Make sure to write a professional resignation letter and hand it into your employer at least two weeks before you plan to leave. This letter is for the company’s records (as well as your own, so make a copy,) so make sure it is brief; it needs only to include a written statement that says you will be leaving and the last day you will be working. You do not need to include any reason for your departure.
  • Work Hard- When many individuals quit their Orlando jobs, they tend to slack off toward the end, believing their work is no longer necessary now that their job has an expiration date. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Keep up the hard work until you leave and ask your employer if there is anything you can do to make the transition easier. This will solidify the relationships you have and provide you with networking connections in the future.
