I got a new job offer that I accepted and I’m planning on giving my notice next Tuesday when my manager is back from winter break. I’m giving a month’s notice to help with the transition of my work but I’m still feeling guilty because I have a good relationship with my manager and my team and I don’t think they will see it coming. Any tips on what to say to my boss when I tell her I’m leaving the company to help lessen the blow? Should I do it at a certain time of day to be more considerate?

It's a job. People leave. You have zero reason to feel guilty. Just say you're leaving and tell her as soon as you can.

If your manager is any good they'll just be happy for you and ask you to stay in touch and provide a referral when they're looking to jump themselves.

Nobody stays in a job their entire life anymore. No need to be worried about it. Just be direct when you tell them.

If you were getting fired they won’t even give you a two weeks notice let alone a month. Give the notice and do what you can to help in the transition process within the time you have. Don’t go above and beyond for a company that won’t do the same for you.

The fact that you’re giving a month notice to help with transition means a great deal. Don’t expect them to send you a farewell gift, but be thankful for the experience and if they respect your decision, they’ll be sad to see you go, but excited for your future.

Over the last few months I’ve seen a lot of staff/seniors quit and move to other jobs. Is this normal for this time? I feel like everyone I know is worried about not being laid off but here I see people dropping like flies. What’s going on? Side note if you are in audit and need a job contact me. 😂
