How To Resign From Your Present Job by dramaticspeak(m): 1:52pm On Dec 30, 2019
How you quit can either hurt or help you where you go next in your career.

I will be doing a thread on "How to Resign"

See below:

Once you put that resignation notice in writing and hit the send button, be prepared to witness a chain of events that’s hard to stop.

Don’t make any moves until you have a signed offer letter from the company you plan to move to.

There are some embarrassing mistakes employees make after they decide they want to leave their jobs: Quitting without having another job lined up, quitting and then begging to come back, quitting with a dramatic exit, threatening to quit (without actually quitting)

When resigning make sure you resign in person

There are three important rules when it comes to breaking the news:

Don’t tell anyone else at the company without first telling your direct supervisor.

Don’t wait until the very last minute.

At the very least, commit to giving a two weeks’ notice.
Don’t resign over email; always meet in person and keep the conversation as private as possible.

If you work remotely, schedule a video or phone call.

The worst thing an employee can do is to walk off the job completely and never be heard from again. It’s a rare move, I am guilty of this — and trust me, it can put a huge dent in your reputation.

If you’ve already made up your mind, don’t be tempted to take the shiny new offers. You might regret it later on.

Your last few weeks at the company may be the busiest you’ve ever been.

Make sure you leave your team in good hands by helping with the search for your replacement
Keep your commitments and let your supervisor and colleagues know who will be taking over what. Write a detailed memo about your responsibilities and what needs to be done after you’re gone.

No matter how much you disliked working at the company, keep it professional and don’t burn your bridges.

On your way out, don’t be tempted to take everything with you. Don’t try to download everything on the shared drive; if anyone finds out — and they easily could — you might be in serious violation of company policies.

Very timely and apt.

The first job I ever did, I simply went awol. No resignation letter, no prior communication with my line manager.
Can't be blamed though cos a toxic work environment and meagre pay could drive one nuts
