If you’ve ever left a job you had a great experience with for a new job with better opportunities, you know how painful it can be to let your employer know you’re moving on.
Some prefer to be very careful with quitting a job or sending in a two-week notice so as not to burn bridges.
One woman is panicking after accidentally revealing a job acceptance email to her current employer before she could notify them that she is quitting.
She recently accepted a new job offer after working as a designer for the same company for a while.
“It was a difficult decision because I enjoy my current job, and I love my co-workers, but the new position is a better fit with the kind of work I want to be doing,” she explained.
She received an email about her acceptance from a recruiter with a subject line that said ‘Job Offer.’
She hasn’t signed a contract for the new job yet, so she hasn’t told her employer that she’d be leaving, and she’s dreading it.
“We are a small company, I’m in a close-knit team of only 4 people; all of us are good at our jobs, and we are quite busy,” she said.
“My leaving will be unexpected and not great for the team, and I do feel bad about it.”
