So, you have decided to move on!
But before you do, make sure you follow these five things to ensure you are parting ways on a pleasant note.
1. Walk out with your head held high
People usually remember the ending of a story more than anything else. Your stint needs to end with smooth transition, KT, successful delivery of your tasks & possibly finding a replacement. Be remembered as a star!
2. Be humble & stay in touch
Never burn bridges because this world is a small place. Be helpful to everyone & ensure you add everyone on Linkedin to keep in touch. Your network is your networth!
3. Exit interview
Give unbiased feedback to help the company improve and be successful.
4. Thank everyone
Your current company gave you an opportunity & was your home. Be passionate & take pride in it even if you move on. You’ll always be an alum.
5. Plan a vacation
Take a break if possible before you join your next company. It will help you rejuvenate & spring back with high energy!
Bottomline: Till the last day, ensure you are 110% professional even if others are not. Remember, just because someone is stooping low, doesn’t mean you need to match them in unprofessionalism.
You need to show them how to be a true professional.
