Very few of us are staying in the same position or the same job at the same company our whole career, which also means, that a lot of us have tried the very difficult thing of saying goodbye to our coworkers and friends, to try out new challenges.
But how do you say goodbye to your employer and colleagues, and is there something you need to remember when sending the resignation email? The obvious answer is yes, of course there is, but what is it then?
We are going to take a look at exactly that today, and even give you a specific template, which you can use for your own resignation email. 👏

There can be many different reasons to why people are resigning from their jobs, and it is not always positive. But no matter the situation, it is important to remember these things! 👇
