  • Letter of Resignation @ Work

    Hurray for me! I am in the process of negotiating a salary and start date to jump to a large financial services provider in a career move that will offer me a new skill set and a chance to manage people. However, I have a bit of a connundrum. My boss is on vacation for the rest of the week. I could give my letter of resignation to my boss's boss, who is President/CEO of the company, but I feel like that might slight my current supervisor. I'm not looking to piss anyone off here, and I want to do the right thing. Should I wait until next week to resign and potentially give less than 2 weeks notice, or should I give notice to the President and speak with my supervisor next week?

    I would wait until next week, and give less then 2 weeks notice. It isnt your fault your boss is on vacation while all this is going on. On another note though, congrats, and good luck in the future with your new job. Lets go Phillies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I would give it to your CEO then speak with your supervisor..

      Having parents as business owners, they appreciate actually getting a notice, 2 weeks is great. Explain to your supervisor is wasn't anything against him, he just wasn't there. But I'd have a copy of the letter waiting for him as well

        I'd wait for the simple reason you're still negotiating the new job, even if it is just the salary and start date details, have the official final offer in hand before you quit the current gig. Explain the situation to the new employer, I'm sure they'll understand and quite possibly even take your need to delay your start date as a sign that you're a conscientous and responsible employee.

            I'd give it too the CEO and leave a copy in your supervisors mailbox that way you're covered. And remember 2 weeks is a formality not a requirement.

              This is exactly what you should do. I assumed you have the other job locked.

              Hell your new employer would appreciate the 2 week wait knowing your a good and faithful employee.

                I'm still negotiating, but they want to have me on board ASAP. Seeing as the money will be a 25-40% pay increase, it's in my best interest financially to make the move sooner. I also have 4 weeks of vacation saved here that I will get compensated for when I leave. Fact remains that I don't have a written offer yet, so I'm getting a bit ahead of myself.

                    I have the other job locked because they say they want me and have initiated salary/start date discussions. I'm not giving any notice until I have it all in writing.

                      Until you sign the paperwork, no job is a lock. Just be careful and mindful of the situation and you'll be ok. Remember they may have another candidate lined up and just using you as leverage in salary demands.........

                          I'm switching industries and am adding responsibilities and skills with this move. I'm asking for compensation for additional health insurance costs, the fact that I have to drive, and for the jump. Standard raise to pry someone loose from another company is 20%. I'm not asking for a ridiculous sum, just in the neighborhood of what I should be paid.

                            If Laron Landry can be the highest paid safety in the NFL just because he was a high pick in the draft, then you can ask for 40% in a raise.

                              Ha. It's a matter of overselling more than anything else. Whenever a prospective employer asks you what you make, automatically inflate the figure by a reasonable amount (If you make $35k, say you make $40k or so, etc.). Since white collar companies also understand that it usually takes a raise over the baseline to entice new employees to sign on, you create a significant margin right off the bat. In the consulting industry, for instance, the standard is at least 20% above current salary to get a new employee. In other industries, it's less, if anything. If you inflate your salary reasonably, even if you sign on for "no additional money", you're still looking at a raise.
