It's #TipThursday, one of my favorite times of the week! 👩🏫
This week, let's talk about leaving on good terms and your relationships intact. 🤝
Networking is powerful. You may be leaving a company for a new opportunity or perhaps because of management. There is a myriad of reasons for parting ways.
Whatever the reason may be, it's important to depart on a positive note and maintain your bridges. You never know where your connections could lead you and what opportunities you may have because you worked with someone at this company.
Another excellent reason to leave on good terms is making sure you're eligible for re-hire and ensuring that you have at least one manager who will be a positive reference for you. Some companies have this as a requirement for their hiring process and it can bar you from potential jobs.
The last two weeks (don't forget to provide a two-week notice, this is a crucial common courtesy!) at a company may be the most important two weeks of your career with the organization. Make them count! 🕑
Now it's your turn! Were they any opportunities that you missed out on or that you gained with your relationships from a previous job? I'd love to hear about your experiences!
