If you're leaving your job: Get the facts about the internal situation and the external labor market. Don’t wait to be let go or or for severance pay, unless it’s imminent. Don't say anything until you've got another job in the bag. Be nice about the fact you're going,
- [Host] If you're thinking of leaving,…key point number one is to get all the facts,…before you do anything hasty.…Find out whether it's just rumor,…or whether it really is going to happen.…Don't believe every negative rumor you hear…and don't immediately throw in the towel…and say, "Right, I'm leaving."…Talk to your boss, HR, senior managers, if you know them,…any contacts you have in the organization,…find out as much as you can…and check the external situation as well.…Don't assume that the labor market is good or bad,…because even if things are generally good or bad…in the job market, they could be different…in your sector or skill area.…
So get some irons in the fire…and then you'll know how good or not leaving would be.…Second, don't leave out of pride or anger.…Don't leave for an emotional reason.…For example, if you have to reapply for your job,…I know it's degrading and annoying,…but keep focused on what you want from the situation,…rather than getting angry.…If you'll probably get your job again,…then why not be interviewed?…
