Leaving a Lab Gracefully

I don't know if Science timed this to appear around this time on purpose, or if this is a mere coincidence. Still, this is a rather thoughtful and timely article on what one should do and consider when leaving a place of work. This is rather appropriate right now with several US National Labs laying off people and voluntary attrition due to the budget cutbacks. In this article, the focus is more on leaving a research laboratory, although the advice given is pretty generic to apply to almost anyone.
