How do I tell my manager I'm leaving the firm? First time quitting a job and I don't know the etiquette. I assume a Zoom is better than an email. Do I tell him where I'm going and why? Do I tell other people too or let him do it? Any important details to take care of?

Zoom is best if you’re not in the office. Follow up with an email, which is likely required but if not still a good idea so it is documented. Tell them your last day which should be 2 weeks out but be prepared in case they say they don’t need two weeks and to leave immediately (depends on projects you’re on). In the conversation and email don’t burn any bridges. Thank them for the opportunity to learn and grow within the company. Ask if you need to notify HR and how to handle transition and communications with your clients. Finally, good luck with it! I know it can be scary to have that conversation.

Write a really long, flouncy resignation email and send it to the firm_all distro for your company. That way you'll make sure everyone who might need to get it gets it.

I know that’s a lot of manual work to set up the individual school events but is there any reason that wouldn’t work? It’s been a while since I’ve had to do this and I don’t want to have to re-do anything and look messy! Thanks for any tips in advance!
