What to do after resigning from a job?

You’ve resigned from your job. You must be feeling free. You’re finally free to use your time as you see fit. But before you go on with your life—or at least before you make any big decisions about it—it’s essential to take some time to review the final agreement between yourself and your employer, especially if there were any unusual circumstances surrounding the resignation. For example, what do they owe me in exchange for giving up my time? How many weeks’ notice should I have given them before leaving? Are any benefits or perks that should be paid out at this point? And most importantly: Where does this go for me now regarding networking opportunities for future jobs (or just getting back into one)?

Review your contract or employee agreement

You should also take a look at your contract or employment agreement. Make sure you understand the terms of what is included in it and how they affect you, as well as how they apply to other people working in your position. If something is confusing or unclear, ask questions!

Finally, make sure that any changes made during employment are reflected in the contract itself—if there are any special requirements related to changing positions (like needing to wait three months before joining another company), make sure these are outlined as well.

Attend any exit interviews that your employer requests

An exit interview is a great way to get the information you need, but it can be intimidating if you’re new to the process. Here’s what you should know about how an exit interview works and how best to prepare for one:

  • Ensure your manager knows exactly what questions they want to be answered in their conversation with you. If not, ask them before agreeing on an appointment time with HR or another representative from their company (this could be another employee).
  • Consider what benefits would accrue from the meeting—for example, if they want feedback on performance reviews or compensation packages moving forward. You might also think about whether any follow-up steps are required after the meeting has concluded; this is especially important if there’s some disciplinary action coming down on anyone involved with your resignation (such as termination).

Complete all pending work

  • Complete all pending work
  • Make sure you have completed all your projects, tasks or assignments. If the company has a system to track your progress, follow it.
  • Ensure that there are no outstanding debts or claims against you. You may be able to negotiate a payment plan if this is the case but make sure that any outstanding debt has been settled before leaving employment with the organisation where it arose from so as not to cause problems later down the line when trying to apply for another job.

Ask for any outstanding employee benefits due to you.

You may be entitled to some employee benefits after resigning from your job. Make sure you ask for them!

  • Your final paycheck: The easiest way to get this is by contacting HR and asking if they can send out a check. If they can’t, see if there’s an online service that allows you to transfer funds electronically or use an app like PayPal or Venmo (you’ll need permission from payroll).
  • Vacation time: You can request and perhaps even earn it retroactively, if applicable, by asking at the end of each month while on leave until all paid holidays have been used up (if appropriate).
  • Sick days vary by company, so look into what policies are in place for employees before requesting additional days off beyond what would typically happen during vacations/sickness.* Bereavement leave: Some companies offer bereavement leave, usually around one week per year but it varies based on location/company policy.* Accrued vacation days

Connect with colleagues and former bosses on LinkedIn or other professional networks

You may be surprised to learn that LinkedIn is still valuable, especially regarding networking and finding former colleagues or bosses who can help you in your new career.

If you’ve resigned from a job, don’t forget about connecting with these people on LinkedIn. You could also reach out via email if they’re not active there. It doesn’t matter how small or large your company was at the time—if someone left their post unexpectedly, chances are good that they’ll have kept up with their contacts elsewhere online as well!

Use your resignation time to complete tasks and make connections that can help you move on to a new job.

Use your resignation time to complete tasks and make connections that can help you move on to a new job.

  • Connect with colleagues and former bosses on LinkedIn or other professional networks. The more people who know about the position, the better chance of landing another one in your field.
  • Ask for any outstanding employee benefits due to you—lost wages, bonuses, etc.—and request an adjustment in how much time will be paid out before taxes are taken out (for example, one week’s worth instead of two). Also, ask about potential tax credits or deductions from these payments; some may apply toward student loan interest payments if qualified!

Leaving a job can be a significant change; we hope these tips have helped you prepare for it. The first step is to take some time to reflect on what happened and how it made you feel—and then come up with a plan for how you want to move forward. The temptation might be to return to your old routine as soon as possible but don’t forget that it takes time for new things to sink in. It would be best to keep in mind that the work environment won’t stay the same; over time, things will shift around until people start getting used again (or at least not completely turned off).
