Leaving for a Job You Love? Don’t Burn Your Past Bridges
The offer letter has come and you signed. It’s official, congrats on finding a job that you think you are going to love! The next steps are to resign from your current role so you can get into the new one. However, you
don’t want to burn your past bridges. These people could be future references or a strong network for you moving forward, especially if you work in a niche industry. You never know when you may run into, work with or need these people so you don’t want to leave your role on bad terms. Leave with grace before heading to your new opportunity.
