how to resign gracefully
I have been with the same employer for all of my career, spanning over a decade. At the beginning of the pandemic I was laid off because I had kids at home out of school and could not come to the office. I worked remotely before the pandemic. Because the company would not offer remote work to others, I was told that I was required to be at the office. I have been asked to come back for short periods of time (and work remotely) to get small amounts of work done, that I am the only person able to do. Basically this time away has been eye opening. I've been able to sit with what I have accomplished, and what I want to do in the future. Trying my best to let go of any feelings of hurt or anger, and let myself move on with dignity. This will sound crass - my current job situation feels like a booty call. I'm looking for a husband. How do I leave with grace? Do I have to give a two week notice? Does the resignation need to be in writing? Other than printing my contacts from Outlook from company phone, what else should I do?
