ONCE YOU’VE DECIDED TO MOVE ON, AIRENE SUGGESTS PLANNING YOUR EXIT STRATEGY IMMEDIATELY:
1Before handing in your resignation, ensure that you have signed the letter of offer with your new employer and passed all medical checks.
2 Fulfil the notice period stated in your employment contract.
3 Maintain your professionalism and positivity by working hard till the last day.
4 Conduct a proper handover of your work projects and assignments to minimise any disruptions after your departure.
5 Discuss with your supervisor and HR department how you can claim your work benefits or clear your annual leave.
6 Be mentally prepared for the exit interview. Keep in touch with everyone of importance, as you never know when or how your paths will cross again.
7 Don’t take anything the company owns.
8 Ask for recommendation letters, especially if you have enjoyed a good working relationship with your supervisors.
