Congratulations on your new position. Now you have to navigate what may seem like a tricky resignation. But, it doesn’t need to be a cumbersome process. Your resignation should focus on two areas: giving your current employer the respect of a notice so they may plan and how you will help in making your exit a smooth transition for their company. It’s easy to be emotional during a career transition, but by focusing on the how and not the why you can leave your current company on a good note and start fresh.
Every good employer looks for ways to keep their team engaged and emotionally invested in the company. The conversation on how to achieve this often surrounds career growth and compensation but one area that is often overlooked is workplace philanthropy. According to several recent workplace surveys, Millennials (21-35) are nearly twice as likely to describe themselves as satisfied with their job when a firm offers volunteer and philanthropic activities.
Creativity takes courage. In our industry, it’s not only an essential element to our work success, but innately speaking, a way of life for most of us. As easy as it may come to some more than others, creativity should be treated as any other talent or skill – practiced often, honed in and trusted with our natural instincts.
