Infographic: How to Quit Your Job on Good Terms

When it's time to move on from a job, you usually know. Sometimes quitting is the result of a toxic work environment, in other instances it's for career advancement. Regardless of the motivation to exit your current job, it doesn't have to be a negative experience.

"Be direct and honest about your unhappiness, but stay away from criticism," Amy Klimek, vice president of human resources at ZipRecruiter told Business News Daily. "This change is ultimately about you, not them. Remain positive and move on."

The way you leave a job is your decision alone, but it's important to be smart about it and leave on a positive note. Business News Daily has created an infographic to help you quit your job in a way that won't burn any bridges.
