Career Opportunities- The Right Way to Resign - November 1998

Keep the doors open

Almost everyone has moved to a new job only to have it self-destruct before you even get started. It has happened to me and it has happened to friends. Sometimes, everything is not as rosy at a company as you might first believe. Perhaps the job isn?t what you were told. Perhaps the job, or the company, disappears due to financial problems.

Whatever the case, nothing will reduce your stress level more than knowing there is still a place for you at your old company. Keep the door open, if you can. At the very least, maintain contact with those fellow employees who can help you locate other job openings in the future
