Def give your two weeks notice in person. Talk to your direct supervisor and inform them that you are verbally giving your 2 weeks notice. Thank them for the opprotunity, talk about how the position at their company benefited you & wish them the best, etc.

Typically, the company will ask for your notice to be in writing, but if for some reason they don’t ask, I would do it anyway.

I agree with giving your 2 weeks notice in person and in writing. Make sure that you have a letter of resignation drafted for them and give it to them and a copy to your HR if you can.

I think you should go into your boss or management and just tell them you’ve found another position and you’re officially giving your 2 week notice.  It’s probably scarey but not a huge deal.  You can have a resignation letter prepared to hand in that morning.  Just google for ideas.  My mom has had 2 employees who randomly do this – no warning just let them know 2 weeks ahead of time.  These were mid level professionals.  Your boss will understand.  Just explain you’re leaving for better opportunies.  Leave it at that. 

Be prepared to train a replacement or write up a list of duties for a coworker to take over.  Also – very important – don’t slack off these last 2 weeks!  They’ll be watching you knowing you’re leaving.  Get everything in order and be polite to everyone, don’t burn bridges.

I don’t know what kind of job the new one is but if it’s a typical professional type job then make sure you have the offer letter from the new company in writing before you give notice.  Until the offer letter is signed, the new company could rescind it.
