Things To Do When You Hand in Your Resignation Letter
There are still a few things you need to do once you’ve handed in your resignation letter. Hold the celebration just yet and check to see if you’ve done the following:
If you’re starting another job, make sure that you get the dates correct. Make sure that you have ample time to sort out anything you need to finish in the job. This will make a clean break by the time you should transfer.
Go to your supervisor and ask if you need to be involved in finding someone to replace you, or if you need to train the new person in the job.
Most companies have clearance forms. There will be office equipment and other materials that you may need to surrender before they can give you a clear send-off. Make sure you accomplish those as soon as possible.
Check unfinished work. Leave instructions, materials, contact lists for projects. This will make sure that you won’t get any blame because you were irresponsible enough to leave everyone hanging.
Find out any documents, forms, notices, or information that you will need to get from the HR and wages department before you leave.
