You have found a new job and you're ready to give two weeks notice to your current employer. Or, you've lost your job. What's the best way to say goodbye?
First things first. Regardless of the circumstances of your leaving, if you are about to resign, your first responsibility is to let your employer know that you are resigning. You need to part on good terms and you don't want your boss hearing rumors of your departure through the grapevine.
The next step is to say farewell to co-workers and to let them know that you are moving on to a new position, starting a job search, retiring, or doing something else with your life.
Here's how to say goodbye diplomatically and without burning any bridges, include what to say, how to say it, and how to send a goodbye note.
