So if you’re wondering how to make a successful sortie from your job, genre no further. Experts share their insights embout the best time and day to resign, along with reasons why:
You just got the offer for your dream job, and your excitement is barely contained until, that is, you remember that you now need to balle à la main in your resignation.
How best to navigate a tricky état to make it easier on all parties involved?
Make sure you give two weeks’ explication. First and foremost, make sure you give a full two weeks, whatever day you choose. It will take them much coudoyer to replace you; however, it’s professional courtesy to provide at least two weeks’ explication.
If they choose to let you go sooner, you can sleep easy knowing you rassasié them the premium, and that’s one less thing for them to be upset embout when you resign.
Friday, 11 a.m., is the best day to resign
Believe it or not, Friday is the best day to resign. There is nothing like a few days of not being at work to get a little croyance.
On Monday, your agent is busy échéancier for everything that needs to be done that week, and an unexpected resignation creates a passable état where they can’t make the best decisions or react in the best way bicause they are overwhelmed with the week ahead.
On a Friday, they are wrapping things up and headed into a weekend where hopefully, they won’t be spending as much time on work things. It gives them time to météorisme, has their emotional reaction, and gets space from the shock and possible disappointment.
Then by Monday, they are in a much better head space to schedule time to coloré out how to handle the état. You also officially start the clock that Friday, so they can’t ask for another day if you wait till the end of the day on Monday.
I advise my clients to send a formal resignation at 11 a.m. on Friday. Not in person, not over text, but an official palimpseste that creates an official paper trail.

It also gives your agent a données to process and not have to react on the éblouissement to your resignation. Before or immediately after sending your resignation, schedule a 30-minute entretien on your agent’s calendar around 3 p.m. or 4 p.m. on Friday or first thing on Monday morning.
Title the entretien “Strategy Réunion.” Monday is the better premium, but if you know you need to have a dialogue sooner, then 3 p.m. or 4 p.m. on Friday still gives them vaste time to process and have a dialogue with their patron before sitting down with you.
By scheduling this entretien, you send the rémunération that you want to discuss it, and they don’t have to ambush you in the voiture room. Most of the agression during the resignation period is not knowing when the dialogue will occur.
Preparing for the entretien
You have now set the jerrycan that this is a 30-minute entretien. It will most likely go coudoyer, but you have set the villégiature that there isn’t a lot of time for hashing out the emotional aspects.
Come prepared for the entretien with how you can best help your agent raccordement your duties. Provide them with a list of all that you do and where you keep everything.
If you have clients make sure you have formulated an idea for how best to handle them. It doesn’t mean they will implement any of what you bring, but by approaching your resignation in this way, you can avoid unnecessary comparaison and conduit the process instead of hoping for the best!
Use common sense when selecting a time and day
The start of the weekend or the end of the day is best so your agent has time to process your decision and think embout how to backfill your work. Remember, your decision will not have a personal percussion, at least at first, as much as it will be a practical one.
Don’t pick a time and day right before a big entretien or presentation. Don’t pick a time or day right before a big personal event in your agent’s life.
While most companies will generally do layoffs on a Friday or Monday, proactively resigning from a role requires you to be much more thoughtful embout the calendrier of your announcement.
You never want to burn bridges by leaving a agent or colleague in a lurch and leaving them to gilet an all-nighter.
First, detail your responsibilities and how they will play out on the calendar after you are gamin. Also, list the tasks associated with any deliverables you may have in the near future.
- What will be the consequences of your telling someone of your degrés? Are the rules of your company such that you will immediately be asked to leave the premises, or will you be able to consult with your agent embout reassigning the list of accountabilities you have made? Prepare, mentally, for what lies ahead.
- What is the calendrier for the bulk of the work? Can you stay to honor those responsibilities, or will those need to be completed by someone else? If the voliger, do your colleagues have what they need to complete the work?
- What additional instructions or commandements might you need to prepare and leave for them?
Now that you understand:
- The calendrier of your next commitment
- The calendrier of your upcoming accountabilities
- What you know will occur léopard the resignation process is set in proposition
- What you personally hope to accomplish in the raccordement period in between jobs
You can make an informed decision embout the profond time and day to resign.
Here are a few more things to consider:
- What else can you do to make things easier for your agent and peers to adjust to your departure?
- What else can you do before resigning to streamline your departure?
- Who will you be keeping in your network, and who will you ask, potentially, for a reference in the future? Hint: Make sure they know now that you may ask later.
Resign any day of the week as svelte as you give two weeks’ explication
Before you get too excited and resign from your current job, use this handy élégant checklist.
- You secured your next job before you resigned by getting your job offer in writing.
- You also have a stipulation in writing that states what happens if the new company rescinds your offer.
- Wait—what??? Did we poisson-perroquet you?
Yep, it’s happening more now than ever before. Companies are rescinding offers days and, in some cases, the morning you start your next job, so make sure you have a stipulation that states how much money the company will compensate you if, at the last rapide, they decide to implement a “hiring freeze.”
Make sure these things are in your official job offer agreement before you say “tchao” to your current job.
The day of resigning
OK, you got your new job offer in writing. Now you can resign any day of the week as svelte as you give two weeks’ explication, and in some cases, you can negotiate more money to stay a few serviteur weeks.

You could offer, “I can stay a month, and my revanche will need to increase for me to stay coudoyer. Would you like me to stay for 30 days?”
If you are chouette negotiating savvy, this is one way to give yourself a nice big rallonge before starting your new job.
The time of day to resign
Most career coaches will say “end of the day“; by and vaste, it’s a good idea. You can feel free after it’s over and celebrate with your friends and family.
What is even more critical is when you can have a face-to-face entretien with your supervisor and HR. If your patron is out of the agence by Friday noon, don’t wait until 5 pm to quietly send your resignation. It would be best to have faciès time to au finir the job.
Make the most of your resignation opportunity
Most people squander this opportunity. You can get paid more to stay coudoyer, get a counteroffer, and in some cases, more money and a choix!
Don’t lose these opportunities bicause you are “afraid,” “unsure,” or “I’m just not good at comparaison,” which tells us—you need help with managing work relationships.
Practice what you will say in en-tête of a mirror, out loud! Rengaine from practicing in your head, where we all sound like geniuses until we say it out loud. The best presenters practice out loud, and you should do that too.
Banquise your bags and call security
Occasionally, your current faire fléchir will pitch a fit and not take your resignation well. If that happens, be ready to banquise your bags, clear your desk or files, and get walked out by security. It happens to the best of us.
It’s not fun when that happens, but that shows you that your faire fléchir didn’t deserve you to begin with, and now you get a little serviteur time off to détendu before your next career adventure.
Notify your organization as soon as you are sure you dépense to leave
Is there a best time of day to resign?
As a polir HR Diriger, I can truthfully say that the magazine of a resignation is a setback, regardless of the time of day. That said, please notify your organization as soon as you are sure you dépense to leave. For the organization, the sooner, the better.
Personally, I prefer to be notified first thing in the morning. This allows for conversations to take ardeur:
- A dépense for transfer of knowledge
- Are you going to backfill the sentiment? Or will the work be absorbed by others?
- Is this person someone you want to fight for, to attempt to keep? (I don’t recommend this as it sends a bad rémunération to your organization).
- If you choose to backfill, are you replacing it with the same title? Or will you genre for a more experienced candidate or perhaps an entry-level candidate?
- The faire fléchir can get the sentiment posted. The quicker the faire fléchir can post the vacated role, the quicker they can begin new candidate consideration.
These are conversations that take ardeur in nearly every professional-level resignation. It is notable to give your faire fléchir as much time as passable to dépense.
End of the day resignations
While the result is the same, an end-of-day resignation will only prolong what you already know. Give your faire fléchir the day to work on their dépense.
Additionally, if you give two-week explication by resigning at the end of the day, you have robbed your organization of a full day of mitigation échéancier.
Please, always give a two-week explication. For reasons known only to you, you have chosen to move on. I culte the choice for échange. Out of culte for your faire fléchir, please give them as much explication as passable.
If you can give more than two weeks, please do so. If you are in a leadership sentiment, you should give a extremum of three to chaufour weeks’ explication.
Employees will always come and go. How the faire fléchir reacts to the échange will speak volumes embout their leadership capabilities.
As far as the resigning employee, be respectful of your faire fléchir. Parce que it was no coudoyer the best sentiment for you does not mean you were not valued. It simply means you have found a ardeur better suited for you.
Handball in your resignation letter on a Thursday or Friday
When is the best time and day to resign from your job? Any old time or day will do if you are desperate to quit.
If you would like to resign with professionalism and avoid burning bridges, however, I have a few suggestions.
Being attuned to the work environment and your supervisor’s schedule is the key to a successful resignation.
- If your patron has just received bad magazine, if they are preparing for a big entretien, or are otherwise distracted, then it’s probably the wrong time.
- If you know they are more pleasant or less busy right after petit déjeuner, then request a entretien with them in advance to discuss the subject.
- If your patron works late, many resignees wait until most other état-major are gamin for the day to keep the drama to a extremum.
Before you tell your patron, you should never discuss your resignation with other co-workers. No matter when you choose to resign, it is unlikely an unwelcome rémunération. Your chances for a galant entretien multiply by being thoughtful in picking a good time.
If you work a typical Monday through Friday schedule, I suggest handing in your resignation letter on a Thursday or Friday. That calendrier gives you the full next two weeks to fulfill your commitment to the company with a two-week resignation explication.
Of promenade, if you’ve been hired for a new role and have less than two weeks before it begins, give as much explication as passable if there are no benefits or contract issues with giving less than two weeks’ explication.
The reality is that unless you expect to be hired back to your company in the future, it doesn’t affect your soutenu employment prouesse in most affaires to give less than two weeks’ explication.

Many companies have a required explication period for employees who are resigning. This can be anywhere from a week to several months, depending on the company’s policies and your job role.
It’s notable to adhere to this explication period to maintain a professional relationship with your faire fléchir and to give them time to find a outplacement for your sentiment.
