Hi frends,

Don't break relation when u think to leave the job bze when ppl will come for your help, u don't know.......................

How to Leave a Job Gracefully And Make a Good Last Impression

How can you make a move as pain-free as possible?

First, schedule a private moment with your boss to break the news -- and do it tactfully.

Instead of screaming, "I quit," say something about "how fortunate you have been and how grateful you are for all the opportunities you have been given, but that you have an offer that you felt you couldn't refuse".

In other words, don't be tempted to use leaving as an opportunity to blow off steam. You never know when your boss will be a good reference. It's so dumb to make everyone angry before you go.

Don't burn bridges with co-workers, either. Remember that anyone you've worked with is a potential reference.

Another way to make your transition as smooth as possible is to give more than two weeks' notice. Most employers won't be able to find and hire a replacement in two weeks, so if you can give them extra time -- three weeks or a month -- to get started, they will usually be appreciative.

Some employers get very upset when someone quits and may want the worker out immediately. So before you tell your boss, you might want to reflect on how your boss has responded in the past when employees gave notice.

You download all the personal documents on your computer to a disk before you go in to see your boss. That way, if he or she ignominiously boots you out the door, you already have those things in your possession.

Presuming your boss doesn't flip out, you do as much as you can to help your boss hire your replacement, which might include writing a job ad or even gathering and vetting resumes from possible candidates.

Another thing to do is to write instructions about how to do your job for your replacement and even to offer to make yourself available to answer any questions for a week or two after you leave.

The resignation/ thank you letter should "thank them for understanding your position and for giving you the opportunity to begin with." A really nice thank you note goes a long way.

Of course, you should also resist the temptation to start completely slacking off after you've given notice.Work as hard as you possibly can. People are watching you.

Hi Sid
Nice article.
All the things which you have written is absolutely correct. But when you talk about notice period, you know in present scanario nobody is ready to give you more than a week's time to join a new organisation. What should a person do in that case?
Secondly, I personally feel when somebody serves his or her notice period the immediate boss doesn't behave normally.
Could you put some light on it?

Hi Shikha,
This is my sixth organisation.
My experience is very gud bze I have given enough time to my prevoius employer except one case for that relation is not gud. Every perious boss and employer( for small organisation) used to call me for my wellness. I used to call them that how they are and how work is going. We should never spoil our relation. See this is world where people come and go but they used to leave their footprints for that they are appreciated or defame. Its my personal experience. We try our level best and rest of thing we should leave on other.

Hi Sujata,

It is very true that the management does not react positively after one has submitted his resignation.
But it pays a lot if one exits gracefully from the organization.
Atleast, the management will not speak ill of you.
Even your name in the corporate circle will be spoken high(sorry I do not have experience of this... I am still with muy first organization)
But I had read these things in an article

Hi Sidhu,
It infact a very good article. People who leave any organization should take care of such things. It makes ex-employer feel good about the employee who is leaving.
But unfortunately not too many people do this. They do exactly opposite of this. Sometimes it so happens that after seeing employee's behavior during relieving, employer feels its good that employee left the company otherwise it would have effected other sincere employees also.
and thats really bad.

hi friends
i have good experience on this matter, because only a week ago i resigned from the company and joined in an MNC.
the way I handled is:
first expressed my sincere thanks to the seniors, narrating the exposure and guidance from seniors obtained, pointing out the carreer progression and promotions obtained from the company and make them understand that resignation decision taken only for further enhancement of the career and not for any other reasons.
