I`ve handed in my notice 3 times, every time when I changed my work. I was calm and in some cases extremely happy because I was on cloud nine – I found a more interesting one.
In Ukraine, workers have to hand in their notice officially, through the HR department.
I believe that such persons, who regretted after they handed in their notice, exist all over the world but in my circle, I don’t know those people.
