Is it Time to Move On from Your
- Leave for the Right Reasons
Make sure your reasons for leaving are things
that can’t be fixed or aren’t your
own problems that you’ll take with you
to a new job. Be prepared to talk about your
reasons for leaving at new job interviews.
- Have Another Opportunity in Hand
The best option is to have a written job offer
in hand before leaving. Failing that, have several
opportunities identified that offer you more
than your current job and that you have a greater
than a 75% probability of landing.
- Leave Gracefully on a High Note
Be sure to give proper notice and leave your
position in great shape for the next person.
You may want to maintain contact with people
at your current job as part of your professional
network. You may also look to do part-time or
consulting work for your old employer some day.
If All Else Fails
And You Get a Flat Out No
Take Time Off
Get away from the job for a few days and reflect
on your decision. See how you feel not being
at work & compare that with how it feels
to go back. I think you’ll then know what
you need to do.
Remember, it’s your life. It’s
time to step up and get more than just a paycheck
out of your job. After all, you spend about
60% of your time there.
