When you resign from your job, it's important to resign gracefully and professionally. Give adequate resignation notice to your employer, write a formal resignation letter, and be prepared to move on prior to submitting your resignation.
Why do manners matter? Even if you hate your job, hate your boss and can't wait to start that new job, even if you are about to be fired, it's important to be tactful and not burn any bridges.
That way, you can hopefully leave with good references and start a new job with no leftover hard feelings on your part - or on the part of your previous employer.
Here's more on how to resign from a job and a resignation checklist to review so you can cover all the bases - compensation due, your last paycheck, benefits, pension plans, and possible references - before you head out the door.
