So I’m pretty certain I’m about to give my 2 weeks... and I’m trying to not be too excited about it haha That being said, I want to leave on a good note. Do y’all have any tips on smoothing out the exit process?

Yes- Keep your going away messages and convos super simple. Thank people for their help, even if they weren’t helpful. Cite specifics for those who were actually helpful. Do not gush about your new role. Do not try and explain why you are leaving- keep it at “it just feels like the next step I was looking for”
