Exercise professionalism at all times. Ultimately, itâ€™s always wise to exercise professionalism, integrity, and respect when looking for and securing a new job. Itâ€™s never cool to bad mouth your current employer during an interview or to your existing co-workers, regardless of how much you dislike your job or your boss. You donâ€™t want to be seen as a complainer or one who isnâ€™t loyal. Also, whenever possible, you should always give at least two weeks notice before leaving your current employer. Itâ€™s best to allow time for transition and most employers will understand this common courtesy. Once youâ€™ve accepted a position and received a formal offer, schedule a time to meet with your current employer to thank them for the opportunity to have worked there. Itâ€™s tacky and cold to just send a resignation letter without first having a conversation. And of course, youâ€™ll want to leave with dignity and class. After submitting a well-written letter of resignation, take the time to thank your colleagues and share contact information. You never know how those relationships might help your career in the future.
