Relocation: When is the best time to give your resignation


Is it possible to give notice of your resignation too soon?



Question: “I am planning to move out of state this summer. When would be the appropriate time to let my current employer know of my plans? I would like to give them enough notice so they can find a replacement, but I’m concerned that if I let them know sooner rather than later, they might replace me. I would like to work as much as I can.” – Nancy

Our initial response to Nancy’s question “When is the best time to give your resignation when you are planning to move to another city”

  • You want to be certain that you’re move is 100% happening.
  • You want to have everything in order for your move. Including work arrangements if possible.
  • Give adequate notice to find a replacement without giving too much notice that you end up out of work too soon.
  • Offer to train a new hire to secure longer employment with your current organization.
  • Discuss the possibility of working remotely with your employer if at all possible (have a proposed plan ready to discuss your ideas).
