    I got this new job that is a great opportunity for me. They just called me about an hour ago to inform me that I got the job, and that they want me to start on Friday morning. The issue is that I can't give the company that I am working at now 2 weeks notice. I've been working here for a while, but they've never given me a raise and I'm not doing what I went to school for here. My job is basically an office assistant so it's nothing critical. Should I feel bad that I'm only giving them 2 days notice?

    The new company is obligated to let you work the two week notice period out because if you just leave, it will put your current company in a bad spot, and could impact your ability to get a reference from them in future. Regardless of whether you've ever had a raise you do not want it to affect your reputation long term. My two cents.

    I agree with Marlo. It's probably a tactical error on your part to disrespect your current employer by not giving appropriate notice. The only reason you should 'feel bad' though is that the new company you're about to go work for are a bunch of dicks if they won't let you give 2 weeks.

    Congrats on the new job! Sucks about the short notice, i think if the company really wants you, starting a couple of weeks later shouldn't matter. Would it be possible to work both jobs for the 2 week period or do the hours overlap?

    If you're in a role that not giving 2 weeks will taint your name and future prospects in the industry, then tell the new employer that you need 2 weeks. Otherwise, who cares. It's standard but you need to do what's best for you.

    Just remember, business communities are small. My profession everyone knows everyone and a gaffe will taint future hiring prospects elsewhere.

    Take note and watch out if the new company won't allow the two week notice. My company asked me what time I needed. On that note....

    This week wraps up my first year here at ______, and what a wonderful year it has been. I feel like I've learned more in the past year than I have in the previous 5. The materials and scale of work continues to blow my mind everyday. And as long and stressful as these days can be, I'm loving every minute of it. And, fuck you guys. Just sayin'.

    Well the thing is I am about to graduate with a degree in Multimedia Design (Graphic and Web Development) and am just working as an office assistant for the company that I am with right now. So what I am currently doing has absolutely nothing to do with what I am going to school for, and the job that I was just hired for is exactly what I am going to school for.

    So bascially I am in a role where not giving 2 weeks will not taint my name. I informed my current employer as soon as I got hired by the new company, and she was actually happy for me and said it sounded like a great opportunity since I will be doing what I am going to school for. She was obviously disappointed that I could not give more notice, but she straight up told me that I need to do what's best for me, just like you did.

    So in the end, it's all good. But I still feel a little bit bad.
