How Not to Quit Your Job
Just because you're leaving your job doesn't mean you should torch the organization on your way out the door. How you choose to resign says a lot about your character and will determine whether you have glowing references who will support your career moving forward, or if you'll be remembered as an unstable or irresponsible person. A new survey from OfficeTeam takes a look at some of the most off-the-wall resignation statements made by real employees when they quit their jobs. "How you leave a job can be just as important as what you did while you were there," says Robert Hosking, executive director of OfficeTeam. "Regardless of the reason for resigning, make a graceful exit. By tying up loose ends and thanking colleagues, you demonstrate your professionalism, and that can help you down the road in your career." More than 1,300 senior managers in organizations throughout the U.S. and Canada participated in the survey.
