Every week, I get emails from people asking the same question: how do I quit my job?
It’s a complex one, to be sure, but I still think it’s really important to answer.
So, a while back I created a post called 13 Approaches to Quitting Your Job (Without Burning Bridges) and it has continued to be one of the most popular posts on the site.
But, I wanted to go even more in depth and create a video where I dig a bit more into the advice I would give someone on quitting their job.
The reality is, quitting your job can be really difficult. Emotions can be running high, people take things personally, and if you’re anything like me, you may feel a severe sense of obligation to your employer.

When you know how to quit your job the right way, then you’re going to be able to leave the office with your head held high, references in tact, and maybe even a future client down the road. Yup, that last part is true, we’ve had a couple of LR members go back to their old employers and turn them into clients (for more money).
