What is best practice for the sequence of people to notify when you hand in notice? Figured HR always has to be the first call but have heard of managers / partners feeling slighted at not being told. Appreciate any advice!

Here’s a recommended order:
- Senior most team member you have a strong relationship with
- HR letter to kick off the process
- Other leaders & colleagues you need to transition projects to
- Team email signing off on last day

I’ve resigned twice-one big and one small company. In both cases I told my manager first, who took care of any HR/IT next steps. In my first company, they didn’t want me to tell anyone, but I did tell my PM (I was an analyst) so she could plan for it. In my second company, my manager asked me to tell my team and then I spoke with anyone else I felt should hear it from me

There are many reasons why people in the working world are not direct when speaking. They are one of the following:

* They pretend they are experts
* They are inexperienced
* They are full of themselves
* They don't know what they are looking for
* They love to talk

Even if these people have good intentions, be careful of them. Your time is valuable, and the best thing for you to do is to be direct back at them.

I love my job and the people I work with, but there’s one thing that really bothers me: the lack of diversity. Sometimes when I walk into the office and see everyone else around me as the only POC, it feels kind of weird. I don’t think anyone here has ever said anything racist or sexist to me personally, but I don’t feel comfortable talking about these issues with anyone because they might take it personally and then things could get awkward between us.
