I’m 22 and I’ve been working at a nearly-family company for almost 3 years. It’s a small company - about 10 employees total and I take care of 90% of the office-related work. I’ve pretty much known my boss since I was born. My mom works there and a girl I’ve known since I was 6 years old does also.
I’ve made the decision to leave my job. It’s just time. I am ready to get out and do something new with room to grow, more people to be around, etc.
I’ve already have decided that I wont give just 2-weeks. I’d like to give my boss more of an advanced notice. Right now we’re in our busiest time of the year and I don’t want to leave the company scrambling to find someone to learn my duties. I’m not in a huge hurry to leave, but my personal deadline is to be out of there by or before October 31st. I think it is plenty of time to make a smooth exit without causing a tidal wave for the company. That gives me time to put together a new resume and find a new job.
Now that I’ve babbled on a bit I’ll get to the point - I’m not sure if I should write a letter, just sit down and talk to him or both? So how do I quit a job on good terms?
