if you resign from your job, hopefully, you have a new one lined up prior to departing, and if not, then hopefully enough financial stability to keep yourself afloat for at least six months. It's never easy to leave a job, and for some, it can be messy, but you can —and should— make your exit gracefully. How you resign from a job can greatly affect your future, so it's imperative to leave a good impression. After all, you may need to call on your former manager someday for a reference.
These next two points were conveyed earlier, but they bear repeating. 1) Leave on a positive note, literally, with a strong and upbeat resignation letter. It must convey maturity and provide closure. 2) Be sure to give at least two weeks' notice, unless you have reason to leave sooner. Sign the required HR paperwork, say goodbye to your coworkers and colleagues, and connect on LinkedIn with the coworkers you want to keep in your professional network.
