Transitioning Jobs

March 2 2021 - Are you currently preparing for a job transition and are wondering how you should proceed for the best results? Leaving a company and starting a new job can be a huge transition, and while it's an exciting one, it should not be taken lightly.

For some advice on transitioning jobs with ease, keep reading. In this guide, we will give you some helpful tips that can allow you to make this transition as smooth as possible.

Prepare for Giving Your Notice


It's professional and responsible to turn your notice into your boss or supervisor in a timely manner. However, before you do so, you may want to get your new job in writing. Make sure details are clear in the job offer, including your start date, your salary, the role, your responsibilities, and benefits.

You should also gather any documents that you have legal access to that outlines your job performance review feedback as well as any special awards or achievements you've had at the company during your time there. Your work samples and professional achievements will provide you with documents that can come in handy when applying for jobs in the future.

You should also know what property, platforms, and software belong to you and which will need to be handed over to the company before you leave. When giving your leave notice, you should do so verbally first, and then give a written notice after. When resigning, be positive and appreciative and plan to do so at least two weeks in advance out of respect for the company.

Offer to train or prepare documentation for the professional who will fill your position. Sharing this helpful information will allow the new hire and the company to continue their processes smoothly.
