Leave a lasting legacy
Taking the steps listed above will help smooth the transition to your new position. Leaving a position on your own terms often allows you to have closure when you move to your next endeavor. For some people, the typical two weeks’ notice allows closure, for others the transition can take months, often while completing one set of projects in the former position while beginning the new one. Do what you can to leave a legacy that helps the next person to succeed with theirs.
