    • Careers

When we decide to leave a job that’s not serving us, it’s not always as easy as resigning and having a smooth exit. Very often our contracts are riddled with hurdles and landmines that turn a simple exit into more of a full-on extrication, but that doesn’t mean we have no options. 
 
What factors make it hard to exit in a painless way? How do we deal with long notice periods and non-compete clauses? 
 
In this episode, I pick up from last week and talk about what could possibly make a smooth exit impossible and what you can do about it. 




Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode 
 
- How to prepare yourself to exit your contract 
Even if we’re getting a lawyer involved in the contract termination, what “pre-game homework” will make the process easier? 
 
- The challenges we might face during a notice period 
A notice period can be a really painful time to show up to work. How do we make sure we’re not there longer than we need to be?
 
- The non-compete decision we all have to make
If we’re going to wait out a non-compete, do we have other options to make it more bearable?
