    So I have not signed a contract yet however I am employed currently and I got a new offer at a different area and I feel awful resigning so suddenly. If I didn't sign a cintract can I just say I am resigning effective immediately? Like I have to go like now and I cannot wait any longer. I am terrified to speak to them in person or on the phone but I dont want to sound so heartless by just sending an email. I really dont know what to do bc I a worried they will try to talk me out of it, make me feel bad about it, or something else. Is it really that bad to send an email? Like I literally am having anxiety about calling bc I really liked where I worked but I have to go for personal reasons. HELP!

    "You don't need to give them more than 2 weeks (notice)". Ehh in my last job I was on 3 mnonths notice and the one before 6 months. In one job a guy joined, got a better offer and resigned after a month. The company made him work the 6.

    Also another question please 🙂 if we give less than the required period of notice, does that risk us not resigning with class, and they just get annoyed and tell people you are not giving the required notice etc.?

    Andy, what is the worst that can happen when you say ‘ … I’m letting you know my last day is (date in 2 weeks)’ and your contract says you have to give 4 weeks notice? Myself, when any of my people leave, if they ‘have’ to leave within the notice period, I have always accepted that that’s the way it is.. we can’t not pay them or hold back any money etc etc, they end up getting paid the days they work and we all move on. Course I don’t want to leave on a bad note, but just asking because my notice period is 4 weeks and I would love to give 2 or 3 weeks max so I can have a week break between jobs.

    If you don't trust your employer isn't it a bad idea to give them 2 weeks notice? If they don't like you they can try to terminate you during those two weeks

    Good advice, but keep in mind, sir, many of us are working from home and cannot meet face-to-face with our boss.

    Great video! I'm getting to ready to submit mine. I enjoyed working at the university. My wife and I decided to move closer to our family.

    I think it is best to NOT tell why you are moving on. Better to be gracious and say how much you've enjoyed working there and being a part of the team. I never give a reason why because very important to never, ever burn bridges. Plus some industries are so small that everyone knows everybody so best to keep my mouth SHUT!

    if you care, you talk to them, if you dont and can go back to the office on the weekend, clean out your desk/station, send and email and or fax (remember those) and move on with your life, this is the great reset. you dont owe anyone anything life is short move on.

    I recently resigned. Things are a bit different in my country, so the notice period is 3 months. There's nothing wrong with my current job, boss or employer, but I got an offer which was simply more exciting for me, and for once I wanted to pursue a different opportunity. I was completely upfront about why I accepted the offer, and my boss let me know that I would be welcome back if should want to.

    If I had been dissatisfied with my current job, I might have been a little bit less forthcoming about my reasons, but I believe you should always be honest, polite and professional. There is nothing to be gained from slamming the door, other than a tarnished reputation.
