Quitting your job can be a tricky thing. For most of us, it requires a little tact. So when one reader emailed us asking if it was ever OK to quit via email or SMS, we had to wonder: are times changing, or should those people have shown more professionalism?

Granted, it doesn’t do any favours for our career to flip over our desk, tell off our boss and walk out the front door, never to return. We write a resignation letter, have a face-to-face chat with our manager, give plenty of notice and make a clean break. Still, we want to know what you think. Is it ever acceptable to quit just by email? Or by text message? Do you think it ever will be? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
