When you are nearing the time to start planning your farewells to the company that you have been with for many years, you need to do more than just plan your farewell party.
Make sure you keep in contact with people you have cared about for so long and probably are interested in how thing go with you in your new life.
Social media have really made this easier for us but there is more planning to do; think about what exactly you will be doing, not the first month but after that initial “honeymoon” period. Plan your finances, your living, your travel etc. Make a profile here with us in the network for experienced talent so that the world can still find you and send you opportunities that may be of interest for you.
