Finding a lucrative new position and deciding to resign from your current job may feel like the hard part of the process, but quitting a role in the ‘right’ way can add more complications than first anticipated. Leaving a role on bad terms does more harm than good; the long-term effects of a temporary heated moment can have a lasting impact on your professional reputation and career prospects.
Quitting your position the ‘right’ way has far more benefits, as Andrew Hastings, Vice President at Larson Maddox, laments, “whichever way you choose, always resign with respect and class, as your current employer and colleagues can, and often will, pop up into your professional Legal career at some point down the road.”
This guide will show you how to depart a role within the Regulatory and Legal sector without leaving a long-enduring bitter taste in your employer’s mouth. Follow these steps to quit your job with dignity and grace, ensuring a seamless transition to your next role.
