Quit Job

How to Quit Your Job Well

First thing is don’t do what I did which was telling everyone they were total idiots and then I had a naughty or nice list just like Santa has. The naughty ones got torn to shreds during my notice period – this felt great. although not very professional of a Partner in one of the world’s top Advertising Agencies.

But looking back, I think I should have done things a bit smarter – especially as LinkedIn is ripe for a bit of gossip!

What can I do?

In the UK we have notice periods from 1 month and up to 6 months for Partners and above – so best to do it right in 8 easy steps:

1.       Try redesigning the job

2.       Chat to your line manager or someone further up you trust

3.       No luck – then we are quitting for sure (but don’t tell your employer yet)

4.       Go and find a brand new spanking job – but stay away from just moving a problem, this new job has to be the problem fixer

5.       Put your notice in with a nice handover plan

6.       Build up your network from that company – go LinkedIn crazy

7.       Do your handover notes – I assume you’ll have very little work to do anyway at this stage

8.       Exit well, lots of thanks and praise to all top dogs – if you hate your line manager then courteous good luck may be all that is needed
