Yep, you're saying that your last day is in 2 weeks. Just a tip, I generally advise that people take a break in between jobs, if possible, to be well rested and mentally refreshed for the new role. At least a long weekend if you can't take more. You may not be able to change your start date at the new job at this point, but keep that in mind for the future.

We have a tendency to underestimate the energy it takes to wrap up a job. Then we underestimate the energy it takes to establish new relationships, learn a new job, etc. A little refresh in between is a good thing.

2 weeks at current firm. If you are leaving BDO in 2 Fridays,, you tell them on Friday

Just email at 11:59. Set a delayed send. Friday is Friday

It doesn’t matter. 2 weeks is about having the time to appropriately reassign responsibilities before you are gone and close out your work. That one day won’t matter to anyone.

I had the same q. I just let them know my last day 3 weeks in advance, and left on the day I said I would. I still worked the first week and the next two were just me passing on items to my team. Very chill 2 weeks.
