Resigning Gracefully

Congratulations! You've landed the job! Now you are faced with the delicate challenge of resigning from your current employer and saying good-bye to friends and colleagues without burning any bridges.

Your FCR Search Consultant or Account Executive will help you draft your resignation letter. Then you will make an appointment with your manager to respectfully explain your decision. Your manager needs to hear that your decision is firm and final and that you are committed to your new employer. Express appreciation for the opportunities that your former employer has given you.

Be careful not to get lured into any discussions other than your resignation. While your employer will want to discuss how to handle your final weeks and the transition of your current responsibilities and projects those items should be discussed resignation otherwise the employer will use them to introduce the counter offer.
