Question

Is it possible to quit my job and still get a good recommendation from them?

I need to quit my job for personal reasons and I was wondering if there was a way to do it without hurting people's feeling and still be able to get a good enough recommendation to get another job?

Answers

Yes, it's possible. If you were a good, reliable worker and you got along well with your coworkers, it's entirely possible to get a recommendation from them. But to make sure, when you talk to your boss about leaving, ask him/her if he/she would write you a good recommendation. If they say "yes", keep the recommendation in your files, so if a question about your job performance ever comes up in the future, you can show a prospective employer your positive recommendation.

Business is business. As long as you give plenty of notice (at least two weeks) and offer to help train your replacement, there shouldn't be any reason why you wouldn't receive a positive recommendation (as long as your performance was acceptable).

Absolutely! People resign from their jobs in good standing all the time. Two weeks notice is standard, but I'd give as much notice as possible, maybe 3-4 weeks. That will make the transition for your managers and co-workers easier, and thus they will have no reason to be upset with you.

Thanks for your reminder. I am ceuafrl in portfolio calculation, but there are sometimes typo errors in my blog, because I am too tired to write it each day.The selling price of 811 and 1288 on that day should be $3.4 and $3.22. Note that the lowest trading price of 811 on that day is $3.38, therefore it is possible to sell it at $3.25.I have corrected these mistakes in my blog. I must double check my blog contents in the future. Thanks again.
