Here are a few ideas to make sure that when you leave your current place of employment a bit smoother -
- Be Honest. Let your current employer know the real reason for your wanting to leave. If it's for a good reason or for career development - that's great. If the reason is you are unhappy or upset at least give your employer the chance to speak about the issues and try and reach a positive resolution.
- Keep it sweet. Don't burn your bridges after you have crossed them. You never know when or where you may meet again with your colleagues and if you might need a favor from them.
- Stay open to possibilities. If you are a star employee there is every chance that the organisation will not want to lose you to a competitor. Try speaking to your HR department and see what possibilities exist in other departments or sites before committing to leaving.
