DEAR ANGELA: I finally got a new job! (Which feels impossible in Chicago) My boss made me miserable for 3 long years and I want to leave in a way that’s not too extreme, but let’s them know how glad I am to be getting out of there. Any ideas?
Free At Last!
Dear Free At Last!
Can I give you some advice? This world is suuuper small, and you’ll probably run into these people again (if not professionally then definitely socially.) You don’t want that future/inevitable encounter to be weird so leave graciously. Give your brutal boss a thank you note, smile broadly but humbly and only speak highly of your experience there. So when you find out that one of your co-workers is secretly the Prince of Abu dhabi and Beyonce is going to be performing at his birthday bash…you can still expect an invite. Know what I mean?
