It’s a big decision to change jobs and the process should be considered and thorough. When it comes time to resign, your objectives should be to; maintain your professional reputation, minimise negative impact on your parting employer and retain your valuable contacts and a ‘door always open’ result. The Australian market place is small, don’t let a poorly handled resignation tarnish your reputation. Even if your current work situation is not ideal or professional, this doesn’t give leave for you to compromise your professionalism. If the resignation is executed respectfully, most often the employee will find the manager cooperative and in fact, wishes only the best for the exiting staff member.
