  • This looks good. It really should not be a big deal at all. Your situation is a little unique, but people resign all the time and as long as you're civil about it you will be fine.
    Nick et al,
    It went pretty well.  Not one word of negativity, my clients, nor the timing at all.  As soon as I mentioned I was resigning and why it turned into a conversation about the new job, what Id be doing, and things along that line.  The partner seemed almost happy for me and let me know that if this doesnt work out I can come back to my job there and to keep in touch during training and when I get to my field office.  HR will be contacting me about pay out for my PTO time, 401k and medical coverage stuff over the next few days.  Thanks for all of the advice
    Tom

    Classy (and smart) move by your former employer.

    Care to/are you allowed to share what you are doing?  Maybe at least what dept of the government you are working for?

    No, I am not a smart ass.......I am a skilled, trained professional in pointing out the obvious and I speak fluent sarcasm.

  • Not that I recommend it but I did it a few times when I was a kid. Told the manager to f themselves. I quit and walked out. There were extenuating circumstances but I still wouldn't recommend it but man did it feel good.
