Resigning Without Burning Bridges

Resignations hit record numbers in the fourth quarter of 2021, while more jobs remain available than the workers who can fill them. Leaving one role for another can cause any professional to focus more on what’s new and next than what’s being left behind. However, one’s networks remain interconnected, often far more than anyone realizes, and resignation missteps could derail future opportunities. This webinar was featured speaker panelist Val Rupp, National Board of Director Prospanica as moderator; Speaker: Gorki De Los Santos, Sr. Manager, Communications; HOLA ERG Leader LinkedIn; Speaker: Claudia Chávez, Career, and Executive Coach, CMP; and Speaker: Joe Frodsham President of CMP

This Webinar took place on May 18, 2022.
