A few years ago, I left a company that I had been with for almost 19 years. If you're considering leaving your job, the one piece of #advice I can offer is this:

Your boss (not your coworkers and work friends) should be the first to know

This can be a hard one, especially with longstanding friendships at work, but it is so important that your boss hears the news from you - and not the #watercooler . Telling your boss first shows professionalism and maturity, and can ultimately make the difference in whether or not you can get a reference from the company you're leaving.
