Job Change Process
A How to Guide by Robert Montgomery
Starting the Change
Allow your employer a two week notice once you are sure that you are leaving. After you have given your employer a notice start looking for another job. If you are being downsized then ask your employer the following questions:
- Are you able to have your pension?
- Do you assist with the job search process?
- Can you be paid for unused vacation time?
After you have turned your notice in you should tell your co-workers so they know that you are leaving.
Finding another job
When looking for a new job first decide if you want to stay in the same profession. You could do this for a variety of reasons. Whether it be the experience or college training staying in the same profession can be very beneficial. You could either find a similar job or a job in the same company. If you left the company on good terms it could be easier to stay within that company.
