This contest is fueled by the following news: Job Quitting Tips: Is it worth to declare that you are leaving the company well in advance? Yes, certainly. First of all, it is the responsibility towards the present employer, to complete the obligations, finish-off any projects and to hand-over charge to somebody. It would be better to join other work with the "peace of mind and clear heart", with confidence that everything was done well. Initial conversations with the head can help the employee to explain his prospects in the company. If you feel that you have "outgrown" the designation and tasks, then it is a serious reason to discuss the matter with the head. During dialog with the company, if you find deserving and perspective options for further realization of your capabilities - the reason to quit the job disappears automatically. During the course of the discussion, if you do not find things in common, then, probably, the time has come for you to think of quitting the organization. When the future career depends on how the previous company behaves, it is not strange that employees start to manipulate and try to tune according to the intra-corporate traditions of dismissal. What's the better way to quit the job? What's the better way to quit the job? Quitting the job is a painful procedure as in the case of divorce: in both cases, the issue is about parting and remaining friends forever is always not possible. By quitting a job, we act on the principle "after me the deluge" and little we think about the memory we leave behind. For this, we may have to pay with our reputation. How to save face while quitting a job? Say thanks for everything! Leaving the job is not the end of a career and more over, not the end of life. We should always be ready that one day we may remain without work. Only in this way, the termination does not become a psychological trauma and will not finally lead to lasting depression. The main reasons according to which we bid goodbye to a familiar place: a administrative decision or our own or with mutual consent. Each of the three situations demands special behavior. So, the secretary asks you to enter the reception lounge and familiarize yourself with the termination order? Temptation is great to insult both the secretary and the chief and on the way sling mud at colleagues. Restrain! Meet the boss and thank him for providing a chance to work under him in the organization. Agree to it that a reason is there to say thanks –after all, you raised your qualifications while working? Such a meeting is always useful because quite often, intrigues from the immediate superior become the reason for termination. The much bigger the organization – the easier for middle level employees to get lost in it. Who knows, what could have been conveyed about you to the boss. In the discussion with the boss, you can say: "I do not know the actual reasons for termination. Hope, there are no complaints from my immediate superior. And if any complaints existed, I tried my level best to rectify them". After this discussion, a chance of you being transferred to some other department cannot be ruled out. Separation without grief? Organizations, colleagues and boss cause irritation? You write an application and the boss immediately, without a further "why" signs the application? As they say, love existed without pleasure and separation without grief. Do not hang on and lose heart but on the contrary, show people that you are confident of your future. If you want to take a dig at the boss, remember one thing: by no means the boss will be upset but will be pleased with your termination, if: * During the farewell, your face reflects a grudge and the mouth is distorted due to agitation; * You shed crocodile tears; they may cause some kind of irony, in which nothing good is seen; * Coming out of the office, you loudly bang the door – this will only delight the boss, thinking that he has got rid of such a nervous worker. Our advice: After dismissal, request a recommendation letter from your boss. It will help you to get a new job without other troubles - nobody suspects you as a disputed person. If dismissed, do not take up the job at the same place – treating the job in the previous organization as a bygone phase. While leaving the organization, do not spoil relationships with colleagues and it is quite possible that you may meet them in life many times. While Leaving, arrange a farewell party and say a toast for the health of colleagues and the prosperity of the organization. After quitting the job, do not rush into an abyss of affairs, have a rest for a week or so and gain strength, which will surely help in getting rid of any depression. In the new organization, you may well have to explain the reason for quitting the previous organization. Never ever speak the following: that you were dismissed on the grounds of redundancy (you will be considered as an unlucky person), that your views with the boss differed or you were offended etc. It would be better to say that you quit the job due to family circumstances but the circumstances very quickly changed. You are quitting the job because you have found a better offer? Good if none of your colleagues know about this or even the boss. It is enough for you to explain that you are quitting the job in connection with circumstances of personal life — for example, because of the birth of a grandson who has to be taken care of. Do not indulge in conversations that you are not satisfied, for example, with the techniques of the organization- through this, you may offend the boss, who probably, was very warm towards you. What, if a hike in salary is offered to you? Such a thing is quite possible. If you have decided to leave firmly and finally tell them that: "You do not see another decision pertaining to the family problems other than quitting the job". If you are having second thoughts: "Why not?" – Then, it would be better to start the dialog with the boss with this sentence: "You have put me in a deadlock. Your offer is very tempting. Thanks for the trust showered on me. I hope I will justify it with my work". However, be cautious: it is not worth it to blackmail the boss with you proposal of quitting the job just for the sake of a hike in salary. They may hike the salary once, but maybe the resignation letter could be approved.
