2 Situations :
1/When you believe something illegal or unethical is going on at work and you are concerned it will reflect badly on you
2/ When your current job is negatively affecting your health and your life outside of work
What To do :
1. Make a plan for how you are going to resign & Put it on your calendar.
2. Find 3 good references for your work. (Boss, colleague, direct report, or client)
3. Write a short resignation letter. It should include a compliment for your current employer and a credible new direction.
4. Follow through. The day after you resign is the first day of the rest of your career.
