  1. Nervous about resigning from private duty case

    Get another position, first, then resign. And do it QUIETLY! DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT, bring up the topic with that Mom. Most likely, she will just continue to 'guilt trip' you. So will your agency try also. Life happens to everyone -you ca...

  10. Leaving Job - Advice For Giving Notice

  11. Leaving Job - Advice For Giving Notice

    K I S S is best! Keeping It Short & Simple for a resignation is best. Yes, you're disappointed & angry, prob VERY rightfully so. But ... nobody's gonna care but you! That supervisor has that authority to make changes. In the next 4...

    I am so disappointedly crushed! A literary masterpiece has been 'lost' to the world.
