DO IT WITH CLASS - Congratulations! You've landed the job! Now
you are faced with the challenge of resigning from your current
employer and saying good-bye to some old and/or dear friends. Your
Strategic Sales Search Recruiter will help you draft your resignation
letter. Then, make an appointment with your manager and calmly and
concisely explain your decision. Your manager needs to hear that you
have made a final decision and are committed to your new employer. Be
careful not to get lured into any discussions other than your
resignation, how they want to handle your last two (2) weeks and the
transition of your current duties, responsibilities and projects.

of us. If I can be of assistance during this time of transition, please
let me know. I have enjoyed working with you and look forward to staying
in touch with you in the future.
