As a hiring agency in Delray Beach, we hear it all the time – and we get it. Mustering up the courage to tell your current employer you are leaving can be nerve-wracking. It can be exciting to receive a job offer from a new company, but scary to tell your boss you’re leaving. To lessen the fear that goes along with giving your notice, you must first remember that you are not letting anyone down. It can be very common to feel like you are disappointing your manager or co-workers, but this simply is not the case. Don’t let them pressure you into feeling this way, they should be proud of you and excited for your new opportunity. Also, be sure to give your notice the proper way, at least two weeks in advanced. Tell them you will be with the company for the next two weeks and will be happy to wrap up any projects you are working on or train a new hire if they replace you. Don’t forget to thank your employer for all they have done for you. We recommend a simple hand written note. Even if you did not like your job, chances are you still learned something and those skills helped you land this new, these can go a long way. And you never know, you may cross paths with these people again so it’s important to leave on a good note. It should be exciting that you are taking on a new role. And be just that –excited! It is a great accomplishment to land a job and beat out other qualified candidates. You should be proud of yourself. We know that leaving a position can be uncomfortable or even awkward, but amazing things can happen when you try something new. Contact us anytime at Sloane Staffing, 561-512-8989.
