When people grow old or begin thinking about the things they wish to do in life, work can get in the way.
All you need is the right steps to successfully quit your job and take shape within your next selection of careers paths.
But what is the best way to fully quit your job and leave the position on the politeness path possible? What should you say? How should you look?
Keep reading to get your hands on some of the best resignation letter templates online.
Is emailing your boss a good way to terminate your employment or should you walk in?
After doing some research online, I was able to learn that although sending an email is a very comfortable option to end your space in employment, it isn’t always the best route there is.
You should first start this off by either being in person, face-to-face via video chat, or with a phone call.
Then once your boss or manager is notified, you will then want to send in a professional email that helps confirm your truth on quitting.
How to word a proffessional email
When putting an email together remember to stay aware of why you’re leaving and the way they gave you a good job to work in. This will, within the overall matter, help you to build these bridges that you have started to build and not ruin them.
I would highly recommend using the following sentences in your email:
- Mention your official reason on why you’re leaving your job and what has made this come to be.
- Express thankfulness that both your boss manager and employment were able to produce work for you
- If you don’t want to express too much on why you’re leaving then that is also OK.
- Express on what day you’re officially ready to leave
- Express gratitude to work colleagues and friends from the firm
- Assure your boss that any unfinished jobs and projects shall be complete
- Keep all lines of communication open for the next session
- Ask for a recommendation note if you’re leaving on good terms.
What not to do when finishing up at your firm
I learned the hard when working during my years of being employed for a boss. One of these was to never leave without saying anything first. There was a brief period when I was so young, I did not understand or know how to fully quit my job properly, and yes, I did learn from this. I won’t get into the specifics but it made me a much more professional as the years went on.
It is important to leave your job the true and correct way. This includes finishing any tasks that you had been doing while working for the firm.
Keep in mind that the business may also keep your resignation letter, which means you also should not use this letter to complain about your job and things you did not like while working there. It is very important to build this bridge and not wreck it. Be very gracious and sport plenty of gratitude on your way out.
