Barbara Kolosinska is sales director at C&M Recruitment. Here she reveals her top tips for ensuring your exit from a job is a smooth one
Give your notice in writing: In your letter you should also thank your employer for your time with them and tell them what you have learnt.
Prepare: Clarify what you want to say in advance before letting your line manager know you are resigning.
Be professional: Remember that the travel industry is small and you could come across colleagues in the future, so stay positive.
Keep it smooth: Assure your manager that you will do your best to ensure a smooth handover of responsibilities.
Discuss new jobs: Unless you trust your colleagues implicitly, do not tell them about your job-hunting.
Lie: If you need time off for an interview, book annual leave rather than saying you have a doctor’s appointment.
Criticise: Don’t bad-mouth your current employer in an interview.
