Q. Dear Bill,
I have recently accepted another role within an organization, and I plan on putting in my resignation to my current manager next week. Because I was not actively interviewing and this role ‘fell in my lap’ it will come as quite a shock to my employer. I have prepared a carefully worded resignation letter, letting my company and manager know just how grateful I am to have been a part of such a great team. What else should I be prepared for?

~ M.E.
A. Dear M.E.,
Congratulations on finding a role when you weren’t even looking! It is very tricky to find a position these days, as competition is tough - you are obviously very marketable. It sounds as though you’ve got the ball rolling by preparing a resignation letter; be sure to print off three to sign - one for your records, one for your manager, and one for Human Resources. Just before you announce that you’re leaving to pursue other ambitions, keep in mind that your current manager may not be as excited. Remain positive, be professional, and be prepared to answer questions on your new company/position.

~ Bill
