    Termination of Employment ideas

    Morning all,

    I have been thinking of terminating my employment from the company I am working at the moment however not sure how to carry it out. I have done this in the past with many companies but this time there is no such problem with the company and that is a problem. I mean I have to find a problem with the employment to terminate it.

    The work and the people are good but the pay is very low. As you all know at these times of the year, we all need a better financial standing to overcome our ever increasing overheads and there is nothing better than getting a well paid job.

    Saying that, the place is in local area where I live plus it is very close to my house, about 15-20mins walk which I count as bonus. I get about 5-8 calls a day from different job agencies to get me a job but you know how agencies work. They talk to much and do nothing. Anyhow, I am not worried about getting another job as yet but how to terminate this one.

    Any ideas or experiences you have had in your employment when you had to make a difficult decision?

    I would love to hear.

    Hahhaha! It was very easy to say in my previous 5 jobs which I changed within 1 year but this one I feel I need to elaborate a bit further then that

    1. Do not quit your job until you have another one lined up.
    2. Formally offer your resignation. You don't need to give a reason, but 'I have found a superior position' is acceptable.

    Seems to me like you found the problem with the employment. If you aren't concerned about being unemployed and you actually like working there, tell them the money isn't good enough. Throw a positive slant on everything you honestly can, but tell them for your own peace of mind you need more money and will be looking for work elsewhere. I agree a letter of resignation should be done, but I wouldn't put "superior position" -- you don't want to piss them off. Just "to further my career", "to improve my personal standing", "for personal reasons" -- whatever.

    I just left a job a few months ago and it was partly because of the money, but mostly because it was just too busy a position and they wouldn't hire someone to help me. I looked for another job for months, landed one and then told them I was quitting. However, if that last job application hadn't gone through, I was going to tell the company what my problems were and see if they wanted to fix it or watch me walk out the door. I still have a very good relationship with them and they keep telling me they wish I would have told them. They say that they would have bent over backwards to keep me (but that's what they say NOW when they are having issues with my replacement).

    Just be sure you know exactly why you are leaving. If it is the money, that's fine, but if you talk to them and they offer you more, is that honestly the only reason? Staying at a job that you aren't happy with is not a great option if it's just for the money and you can afford to choose.

    Ok here is what I have compiled (well stole some parts from online ). Tell me if it's any good.

    Dear Mr......,

    As required by my contract of employment, I hereby give you four weeks' notice of my intention to leave my position as software developer.

    I have decided that it is time to move on. This was not an easy decision and took a lot of consideration.

    Please be assured that I will do all I can to assist in the smooth transfer of my responsibilities before leaving.

    I wish both you and [Company] every good fortune and I would like to thank you for having me as part of your team.

    Yours sincerely,


    What do you think?

    Finally I handed over the resignation today. It all went well though I was expecting something else from them but they were quite happy with my decision and accepted it.

    Anyhow I am glad it's all over.

    Hunting for a new one soon

    Regards and thanks for the ideas guys.

    Good luck to you. As a software developer you should be able to find work pretty quickly....

    Good luck!

    Good for you for carrying it out. Regardless of how much you love or despise the company, the last thing you ever want to do is to leave it on a bad note. It's a small world and the word travels fast. You never know who knows who inside and outside of work.
    Good Luck in finding a new position.

    Thanks guys. Yes Cachedown, I think there is no one who would know better about world being so small as I had cases where I applied went to interview and at the end of the interview they asked me questions which surprised me as to how would they know.

    Anyhow I am sure there are plenty of mad people out there whole employ me, I just have to wait and see
