People are always talking about creative ways to get hired. But what about creative ways to resign? Should you think outside the box on the way out, as well as on the way in?
The answer is it depends what you’re moving on to do.
If you’re going to be working for yourself and you want to generate more new clients, then yes
Chris Holmes (Mr Cake) is just such a person.
Wanting to leave his job at a busy London Airport to spend more time on his cake business, he wrote his resignation letter in icing. On a cake!
Will his Line Manager or HR buy his scrumptious delights? Maybe!
Is he getting lots of publicity through social media for being different? Absolutely!
Could a viral online campaign get him a truck load of new business? You bet!
How could you use your resignation as a way to springboard your new business?
