Quitting my job was tough.
I hated it, but I never came around to quitting it.
Thankfully, one day I decided it was time for me to move on.
With a bit of courage and determination, I picked up the phone and said:
I’M DONE, I QUIT!
Ok, maybe not exactly like that. But I did quit, and it felt amazing.
That’s when I decided it was time for me to help other people with their phone calls.
I had spent so much time dreading phone calls that I couldn’t find a reason to hate them anymore.
If you want to resign by phone but can’t find the courage, book a hero phone call and we’ll handle it for you.
Here’s what you have to know about resigning.
You Have the Right to Resign and Move On
If you’ve already decided that it’s time to move on but you haven’t found the courage to tell your boss, you’re already one step ahead. You know what you want; now you must act. With a two-week notice, you have the right to hand in your resignation using one of these three options:
- In-person resignation – this is the most popular but also the scariest option.
- Resignation by phone – this is a good middle ground between the three options.
- Resignation by email – this is only viable if you work remotely or from another country.
Whatever you choose, remember a few things:
- Your boss has no reason to get mad. If you can’t see yourself working for them anymore, it means that they’ve done a bad job at retaining talent, so stick with your decision and do not back out.
- Resigning by phone is totally acceptable if you’re not working from the office that day. Make sure you call your superior, not the CEO. Also, never call during busy hours as it might backfire on you.
- You should avoid resigning by email unless truly necessary. This is only done in certain cases where communicating over the internet is more viable than talking via cellphone or in person.
The resignation process is a bit overwhelming, but there’s truly not all that much to it. Simply take time to think about why you want to leave and jot down your thoughts before either making a call or talking directly to your superior. There’s no going back after you’ve decided it’s time for you to move on!
Your Resignation is an Opportunity, Not a Failure
As I did, you can also start something amazing just by saying “no.” In fact, learning how to say “no” is one of the most effective ways to step forward in your life and get things done. If you’ve always wanted to get into that one specific niche you cherish, nobody will stop you from doing that.
When you resign by phone or in person, make sure you set the record straight with your employer. Talk about how much money they still owe you, talk about eventual settlements, and make sure you finish what you’ve started. Never leave your employer hanging – it’s not a nice thing to do and it’ll backfire on you.
Also, once you hand in your resignation, make sure you have enough money to cover your expenses for at least six months. After all, you have to find a new way to make money, and that usually involves a lot of stress. It’s okay to take some time off, but never underestimate the fact that your income is going to disappear!
See your resignation as an opportunity to do more. Learn new skills and apply them to the market. Once you get good at what you do, employers will come swarming at you. That’s what highly specialized professionals do, and that’s what you can achieve as well with some time and a bit of dedication.
Sometimes it’s Easier to Resign by Phone
Even if handing in your resignation in person is usually the way most office workers do it, there’s nothing inherently bad if you want to resign by phone. In fact, many people do it, especially now that more and more employers start hiring freelancers who work from home and who probably never even see their bosses.
Keep in mind that if you want to resign by phone, you should call the right person. You can’t just randomly pick somebody’s contact and tell them you don’t want to work for the company anymore. It might sound silly, but these things happen, so make sure you know who your superior is and what to address them as.
Your resignation should always focus on things such as money, the hours that you still have to cover, if the employer needs two weeks of notice, and so on. We know how stressful all of this can be but don’t worry, there’s always a solution when it comes down to handling this type of stress.
