Write Your Two Weeks Notice Letter 

Quitting your job can be both exciting and stressful. There are many things to consider. One step you need to take is to write your two weeks notice letter letting your employer know you are leaving.

When you leave, it’s vital to plan your departure carefully. You need to know what’s coming next. Here are some things to keep in mind as you prepare to give your two weeks’ notice.

Give yourself plenty of time to job search and line up a new position before you quit. If you do not, it is important to have a financial plan to support yourself.

Have another job lined up


Keep your notice brief and to the point, and keep your negative thoughts and comments to yourself during your last few days.

Be professional


Your employer may have specific resigning procedures, so check with them before you submit your letter.

Know the company’s procedures


Think about how you’ll break the news to your boss and be prepared to answer their questions. They may want to know why you’re leaving and where you’re going next. 

Expect questions


Two weeks is the standard, but if you can give more notice, a good boss will appreciate the additional time to find and train your replacement.

Give adequate notice


Most employers want you to complete the two weeks, but some may ask you to go on the spot. Either way, it’s wise to be prepared, just in case.

Be prepared to leave immediately
