Resignation is an important step and one which should be carefully considered when applying for new jobs. It is best to have an open discussion with your manager on your reasons for leaving before handing in your letter of resignation. If they then present you with more opportunities, like a pay rise or higher status, consider these carefully before making your final decision. 

Once you've made your mind up and you've agreed your leaving date with your manager, offer as much support as possible during the transition process and advise colleagues of any outstanding tasks to be completed. It is important to maintain a good relationship with your colleagues and managers, as you will need them to supply your references and can be useful for future networking opportunities. It is important to focus on the positive experiences you've had with the company and make sure you keep a record of all the key skills you've obtained.
