Effective July 1 – notice of resignation 3.6.16

…was the all too clear subject of my email. Six months after discussing my travel plans with my team at work, I submitted my formal resignation. In case you are counting, the gap between this resignation email and my last day of work is four months.

I chose to be transparent and share my plans well in advance for two reasons. Higher education is not corporate America; were they really going to fire me? But more critically, I felt strongly about leaving on good terms and with a thoughtful transition plan in place.

Are you thinking about saying the words, “I quit”? Read how Nomadic Matt managed this conversation.
