With the help of Star Magic, the actress-host decided to address the rumors and clear the air on showbiz talk show The Buzz last October 31. In an official statement, Mr. M confirmed that KC was the newest member of the Star Magic Family. He also dispelled the negative talk by saying, “And we wish to extend our appreciation to Ms. Sandra Chavez and Ms. Shirley Kuan who have generously extended their full cooperation in making the transition smooth and cordial.”
KC herself expressed her gratitude to both her managers for forming her career in showbiz. “Tita SK, you know that you and I... you are special to me,” she is quoted as saying. “I'm really excited also, I know you're supportive of all the things that I really want to do dito sa industriya. Marami nang lumabas but I really like to say na happy ako na tahimik naman kaming naghiwalay. Talagang walang away na naganap. Tahimik kaming... parang nagkaintindihan.”
Like KC, are you also ready to explore new horizons career-wise, but having trouble saying goodbye to your old job (and more importantly, telling your boss about your decision)? Find out how you can leave your job gracefully with these tips from FN.
1. NEVER PLAY THE BLAME GAME--AT LEAST VOCALLY
You may be itching to give your bosses a piece of your mind if you’re leaving because of bad work conditions. Still, battling it out with your bosses during an exit interview will only make you appear unprofessional and ungrateful. It’s all right to give feedback—and in fact, it's necessary for the growth of the company—but choose the words you'll use wisely and don’t let your emotions fuel what you want to say. So suggest, don't criticize.
2. FULFILL ALL COMMITMENTS AND TRANSITION AS BEST AS YOU CAN
We know you’re excited to begin that next chapter in your working life, but before you go, make sure things will still run smoothly for your coworkers. Finish all pending projects and start training your replacement. If you’re not going to be there by the time they hire someone new, work with your colleagues to make sure that someone will ably do your work after you leave.
3. BE AVAILABLE FOR QUESTIONS ON HOW THINGS WORK
Just because you’re out of the company doesn’t mean you’re completely free from responsibility. If you had little time to train your replacement properly, for example, expect a few calls every now and then asking about how you used to run things. Lending a helping hand in the early stages will help ensure your co-workers that things will keep going well without you.
4. REMEMBER TO THANK THEM
You may be seeking greener pastures now, but don’t discount the lessons you learned from your stay at your previous company. Look back and acknowledge the guidance you’ve received—even the bad experiences helped shape you into the strong woman that you are now! Adopting a grateful attitude is a sign of humility and sincerity. If you loved your job and are merely seeking to expand, letting your boss know how much you enjoyed your stay in the workplace will give you a boost, both personality- and career-wise.
5. GIVE THEM EARLY WARNING
Nothing irks a boss more than an employee who ups and leaves at the last minute. Although ultimately no one is indispensable, a lot of work goes into finding a replacement for your job position. If you’ve made the decision to leave, adhere to the two weeks’ notice rule (or whatever policy your company employs) and inform your boss as soon as possible. If you know you'll be leaving even before you hand in your notice, discreetly give your boss the heads up so that he or she can start looking for your replacement. Dilly-dallying will only aggravate the situation.
