Resigning Gracefully

Congratulations! You've landed the job! Now you are faced with the delicate challenge of resigning from your current employer without burning bridges, and saying goodbye to friends and colleagues.

At Lowell Johnson Associates your recruiter will help you draft your resignation letter. Then you will make an appointment with your manager to respectfully explain your decision. Your manager needs to hear that your decision is firm and final and that you are committed to your new employer. Express appreciation for the opportunities that your former employer has given you.

Be careful not to get lured into any discussions not related to your resignation, such as how your employer wants to handle your final weeks or the transition of your current responsibilities and projects.
