Moving to a new position is not unusual in today’s workplace. A study by MetLife found that more than one-third of employees hoped to change jobs within 12 months. There are some tips that can apply to anyone who try to move on to a new position:

1. Let people know
Obviously, your boss knows, but you need to communicate or email your employees, colleagues, clients, and customers. It is important to maintain a relationship between you and your friends/potential clients.

2. Thank people
Make a special effort to thank the people who have gone out of their way for you. One departing employee can take his office manager to lunch as a special thank you.

3. Don’t burn your bridges
No matter how long you have fantasized about telling your boss off – don’t do it. It might make you feel great for 10 seconds, but later you probably would feel bad about it. And the only thing you would accomplish would be to lose a reference. Also, do not post any nasty comments on Facebook.

4. Make the transition easy for your replacement
Be as up-to-date as you can. Leave detailed notes. If possible, introduce the person replacing you to the key people with whom he or she will be working.
