Hi Archana

Congrats on your new job offer !

Send him an e mail resignation,talk to him,send sms about your resignation,make him aware of the news ASAP.

Make documents list with hyperlinks to all required documents and pass it on to him,so that he can share the same document with your replacement.

I hope you are leaving with a notice period ,no ? then pay the notice pay amount and settle accounts amicably.

Alternately ask the new company for few days more extension immediately.

You must transfer your work as appropriate to other employees or to the MD,the least you are expected to do before leaving,always try to leave on a good note.

Thanks
Geeta

HI Archana,

Congratulation on your new assignement!!!!!

What I suggest you go ahead with your decision and send e-mail reasignation to Head of HR dept with and mark a copy to MD with complete details. Like when you want company to relieve you and assign all your work to the person next to you.Make a complete list of work done/pending and in process and handover it to the concern person

Dear Archana,

SMS is not the right manner. However - please send an email and wait for the re sponse (wait for a day)
And if there is no response just call him over phone and talk to him about it.

Is there an HR dept in the company where you work? If yes - then its less a problem.
If not - let us know how the conversation with the MD went. Will guide you from there - but would request you to serve the notice period / or pay the notice amt if you cant wait.

Dear Archana,

First call your MD and discuss with him over phone about ur decision. In case if he is going to give u an offer which is going to be more lucarative than what you have in your hand then think about it. Before taking any decision I would like to remind you that the other side of the grass always looks more greener.

In case if he is agreeing for your release, then make list of files and activities with the status as on today and required follow up give it to next person in your dept with MDs permission. In case you are all alone in the department, then you may hand over all these papers to a person nominated by your MD.

It is always good to leave any job with a god note. In case if you are able to get extension of your date of joining from your new employer, my suggestion would be you should meet your MD in person and shold thnak him for all the support he had extended to you during your tenure at this job.

I Wish you all the best.

one more thing i have to ask..how should get out from this guilt feeling which is building within me....actually its my first job ( so obviously its first resignation)and as a secretary I had gained much confidence from my boss....I know iam thinking very emmotionally in professional life....but what to do?:-(

ask for extension from your new employees. alternatively talk to your boss when he is relaxed. he will definitely consider your request. simultaneously make a list of important files you are handling and inform your boss where he can find the details of them. handover all the dox in your person to someone higher in your company (or HR) and have it acknowledged in mail with a cc to your boss, so that he will know who's had the charge. if possible come back over a weekend and help your present boss with clarifications, if any. it always makes to pay if you leave your present employment in good terms.

have no guilty feeling. if you have one, continue in your present employment. this is a dog eat dog world and each man/woman unto himself.

love your job, not your boss archana!!!

also let me tell you from experience, loyalty has few payers in today's world. keep your contacts green and wish them on their anniversaries, birthdays. that's it.

Well according to me....if you are in such a good relation with your boss..Sending out an email right away is not a good idea...i suggest..call him...explain him the whole problem and the scenario....and then shoot out a formal mail....this will retain your personal touch and exhibit your professionalism!!

Dont worry...and i do agree there is no place for emotions in professional life...you just need to make sure you leave on a healthy note!!
