The boss comes first

If you decide to leave, do so with elegance and discuss it with your manager first. It is both professional and prudent to put your resignation in writing only after receiving approval from your manager. This allows him to analyze the facts, plan his future steps, and perhaps make a counteroffer. Inquire about how you want your departure to be communicated to others, and then let him or them decide what works best.

It’s all about work, not fun

You can start making plans once your departure from the company and the last working day have been confirmed. Because you are still employed, act with dignity. Your future reputation will be determined by how you act right now. Maintain a professional demeanor and avoid the blunder of mentally leaving your office during your notice period. Maintain a professional schedule. Discuss and discuss job expectations with your supervisor and coworkers, and then go above and above in terms of breadth and quality.

Transfer of knowledge

Before you go, your boss could expect you to finish all of your current projects. However, given how short your notice period is compared to the project’s lifespan, this may not be possible. It’s a more reasonable expectation to expect complete knowledge transfer to the person or team who will take over your function and duties. Begin by meeting your replacement and establishing a timeline for information transfer. Introduce yourself and your successor.


Speak with your supervisors, HR, and senior colleagues at the start of your notice period to gauge their interest in writing reference letters. In most cases, HR managers are allowed to write typical experience letters. Make sure they contain information about when you started, when you left, your last designation, and, if possible, whether the firm is willing to rehire you. Even if you have a job lined up for the near future, ask for references as a long-term investment.
