Changing sales jobs (go out on top)

outontopIn this crazy economic environment, a lot of people are swapping jobs because the grass is always greener as the saying goes. Today’s sales post warns you not to stop working hard for your current company during your two-week notice and to go out on top of your game.

Work hard so that all your customers know you are leaving and there are no hard feelings and inform them who they should be contacting in your absence.

The reason for this seemingly weird behavior is two-fold.  First, and most importantly, it is the right thing to do.  If you are collecting a pay check, you owe 100% effort to your employer.  Secondly, this world is pretty darn small (and getting smaller) you’ll be surprised how often you end up selling to, working for, or competing against folks you thought you’d never see again.

Bottom line is to be responsible and work hard until the door hits you in the rear end!

I found out the hard way that “It’s a small world” when applying for my first job. I told the owner that I had had some experience with another business, which I thought he wouldn’t be familiar with. But he was and discovered that I wasn’t known there. Didn’t try that deception again!
