Leaving a Job

The decision to terminate the working relationship can be brought on by the employee or the employer. When employees consider leaving a job, they tend to do so to obtain another position elsewhere, to retire or to pursue other interests. If this is the case, it can be helpful to learn about planning an exit to make certain the termination is on good terms. Leaving in good standing can prove crucial for obtaining future recommendations. On the other side of the coin, layoffs and firings are prompted by the employer and may lead to unexpected unemployment on the part of workers.
