When you resign from a job, you should make every effort to notify your supervisor as soon as possible – and the general rule of thumb is to provide at least two weeks’ notice. But some circumstances dictate you leave sooner, or even immediately.

If that happened to you and now you’re seeking a new position elsewhere, it may feel awkward to ask your former employer for a letter of recommendation. But remember, that letter could carry a lot of weight in your search.

How to Handle a Sticky Situation

If you had a good relationship with your former boss, asking for a recommendation letter shouldn’t be a problem. But if things were rocky or you left abruptly for whatever reason, they might not feel as comfortable vouching for you. Don’t be discouraged. You can still make it happen.
