DO ask for a recommendation
Come again? Oh yes my dear, you are reading correctly. Some employers are willing to provide you with the parting gift of a recommendation – especially if you were a wonderful employee and are leaving on very good terms. Sometimes a job just isn’t the best fit anymore. Maybe it’s taking you away from your family. Heck – maybe you can’t start a family because of the demands. Whatever the case, it’s so essential to end on great terms because if you play your cards right, you can have your boss singing your praises. Keep your composure and play the game of professionalism. You never know what can happen.
