Hello, I'm Charles Galbreath, workforce empowerment speaker and human resource professional. Today, I want to share with you some tips for resigning from a job when you have a boss that's a jerk. Now rest assured you are not the first person to have a difficult boss. But how do we handle that. Apparently, when you've decided to resign because of that difficulty it's very important that you remain professional all the way to the end. The first thing that I encourage you to do is have a sit down with that boss. For you to make one final effort to discuss if there's anything you can do to salvage that job or that relationship that you have with your supervisor. If that is unsuccessful the next step you would take would be to right an official resignation letter. Now some of the things that you want to remember as you're constructing this resignation letter. You want to remember to leave emotion out of it. It's very important that you remain as objective and professional, and respectful as possible when writing this letter. Some things that you want to include, it's very important for you to share with that supervisor things that you liked about that job. Things that you liked about that company. Things that you liked about the position that you were able to do on a daily basis. Something that is very constructive that you can offer are for you to detail some of the difficulties that you had with that supervisor. So that that supervisor can use that feedback for future interactions with coworkers or future interactions with subordinates. Some other things that you want to think about would be utilizing that exit interview that you are offered, if you are offered one, to share some tips for that supervisor or for the organization when you are resigning. So just simply remember to be respectful, remember to be objective when writing your resignation letter. And remember professionalism. Punctuation, remember to proofread. Remember that it's the last impression that that organization will have of you so you want it to be a polished and professional one. Thanks and have a wonderful day.
