Up For Discussion: When Winners Quit (How To Leave A Job With Grace?)

image084.gif A new feature bringing you highlights from the mediabistro.com discussion boards. This week:
pulp fiction: “Sooner or later — actually, it’s sooner, as my sanity’s rapidly dwindling — i’ll be leaving my magazine job. problem is, it’s my first real publishing staff job (i’ve worked it nearly a year), and i have no idea how to go about it.”
WritingEd: “Agreed about the need to do this in-person. Having the letter prepared will help. Rather than focus on your plans, your reasons, etc. during the conversation, focus on how you will help the magazine transition. If you leave things in order you are much less likely to burn the bridge.”
