Leaving a job, no matter the reason, can be difficult and bittersweet. When possible, you'll want to try to leave on good terms with your soon-to-be former employer and fellow employees.Here are some tips for leaving your current job without wrecking your office relationships.1. Make sure you tell your boss before you tell your colleagues.When you make the decision to leave, it can be tempting to share that news with your friends at work, but it's important to tell your boss first."Let your boss know as soon as possible after you've made the decision to leave," Molly Hetrick, a credentialed coach and workshop facilitator, told INSIDER. "Regardless of your existing relationship, it's important that your boss have time to digest the news, and that you have time to wrap up your work."2. Give plenty of notice.Chances are, you already know how much notice you should generally give your employer before leaving your current gig. If you guessed two weeks, you're right. "If you are not rushed to begin your next opportunity, consider offering more than the standard two weeks notice," Monica Yeckley, a healthcare recruiter and staffing professional for Vaco Memphis, told INSIDER. "If you have proven to be a valued resource, replacing you will probably be difficult."If you're jumping from one position to another, however, two weeks is enough notice to give and you might not want to give more than that. Dave Sanford, the EVP of client relations WinterWyman, wrote that stayinglonger than the standard two week period can be difficult for your new boss and company to handle and can be confusing or disrespectful. It's up to you to gauge the situation.3. Make sure the coworkers you want to keep in touch with will have a way to reach you."Give them your new contact information, connect with them on LinkedIn, whateverbe sure to reach out again once you have left your position," Lisa Sansom, the owner of LVS Consulting, told INSIDER."Don't be offended if they don't stay in active touchwe all know that life can get busy.
