As I mentioned in a previous post, “How to Quit a Job” you need to do it the right way or risk screwing-up your career.
You’re still working at your old job until the day you leave. So give it your best shot each day until the end. This means to resist jumping onto social media to update your profiles or to brag about the new job until you start it. Remember, your boss needs to be the first to learn about your move. Besides, you want to give the impression that you’re committed to your current job instead of already having one foot out the door.
While quitting your job the right way is important to your career’s success, beginning your new job the right way is even more important. Starting correctly means you get to keep your new job longer. To help you get off to a flying start, read some of the one-minute coaching vignettes in chapter 15 in my book, Your One-Minute Job Finding Coach. That chapter is titled “what to do for an encore now that you’ve landed.” Click here to order my book on Amazon.
