Note: One of our most popular Newsletters is entitled “Resigning from Your Job – The 21 Necessary Precautions.” We recently received this positive report of someone who followed our suggestions:
I’m so thankful for stumbling upon this article on your blogsite while searching for a way to resign!!
I will be giving my resignation on Friday due to a very unruly boss and co-workers who will do anything to stay on his “good side” (if there is one!). I can’t take it anymore, as it is affecting my health and life at home.
I don’t know that I would stand a chance in hell for any type of severance, but am thankful for the confidence to resign in person and know there may be something I can do.
Clearing off your desk a little at a time is something everyone should think of . . . I cleaned off my PC a couple of weeks ago. The only things left are my photos on my wall and those will have to wait.
Good luck to anyone and everyone out there in my same situation!
Happy – and Now
Ready – to Move On
Dear Charity –
I’m also glad you stumbled upon our blogsite, and that you found our article on the things to think about and do before resigning. It’s only because so many of my clients have made mistakes over the years that I am able to share with our “blog family” the lessons they’ve learned “the hard way.”
As to your chances for getting severance, may I suggest you consider reviewing our articles, newsletters and videos on the subject of severance negotiation. Many people are able to negotiate severance far more successfully than they had expected. Hey – you have nothing to lose!
Thank you so much for your great “Walking Taller” feedback. Good luck to you in regaining your health, and on your next job.
