From dramatic outbursts to passive-aggressive emails to spreading malicious rumors, there are limitless ways to leave a job. However, there’s only one way you should: gracefully. When the time comes for your last day – whether the exit is voluntary or not – it’s always best to end on a positive note.
The saying “it’s a small world” is applicable in your career. News of a poor exit could spread to others in your industry, inhibit future career prospects and limit your work references.
Instead, be proactive. Thank your bosses and mentors, and stay in contact afterwards with the colleagues you valued.
