Last Impression Matters
Yesterday was my last day at work in the bank. People come and go all the time. That’s why I wanted to make an impression that would encourage others to remember me after I leave this workplace. I don’t want to be just another person who has worked here and left; I wanted to be a person whom others remember for who I am and what I do for a living. So I created a farewell card and emailed it out to all my contacts in the office and external parties too. And here are some of the feedbacks I received from them:
- So touching your message, you almost made me cry. I’m saving this as my desktop wallpaper for today.
- It’s in your blood, woman! You actually designed something to bid farewell… gosh! Keep up the good work.
- Nicest farewell message I’ve read. Touching indeed.
- Wooo.. time flies.. and ur farewell note is so cool… It has been great knowing you too and all your kind assistance!
- This is one of the most creative ways anyone has ever said goodbye. You certainly are born to be a designer.
- There is nothing about you that is not beautiful, isn’t it? Nice farewell message. Will miss you lots!
Ah yes, people come and people go. But I’m sure I made an impactful last impression to all my fellow colleagues. Hopefully each time someone sends them an ordinary farewell email, they will remember me or talk about my farewell e-card. Wherever you are, whatever you do, always remember that last impression matters just as much. People remember the very last thing you do before you part ways, so make it count!
