- Wedding: June 2013 - Country Club
I’m currently part-time employed at a small non-chain hotel, and next month our roommate is moving out (So Fiance and I can live alone when we are married!) so I need to find a full-time job. My job doesn’t have the ability to offer me a full time job at the moment. I’m friends with my manager and coworker (before I started working there!) and I know they are also both looking for new jobs.
I initially told my manager that I would start looking after the wedding, but now that my roommate is moving out I’m feeling a little scared and need to find a new job ASAP. I have an interview today for a full time with benefits job, and another interview on Tuesday. Should I let her know that I might be leaving soon? Of course I will put in my two-weeks notice when I do find a job.

@missmorganista: You’re under no obligation to tell them you are looking for a job. It sounds like you’ve been pretty straightforward with your manager, so giving 2 weeks notice to let them find a replacement and perhaps train them is plenty of time. If you want to be nicer, give 3 weeks. That’s what I did when I left my last job.

I think a two weeks notice is more than enough. No need to do anything more.
Good luck on your interview!! 🙂

It’s typically better not to say anything to your current boss unless a position you are being offerred elsewhere wants to call them for a reference. Your boss already knows that you aren’t happy with part time forever so I don’t believe you are under any other obligation except giving your two weeks notice when you take a new position elsewhere.

If they already know you will be looking in the future, no need to tell them you plan on starting the search sooner.

Just two weeks notice is probably enough. No need to create any tension until you’ve actually landed the new job. Good luck!

Two weeks is more than enough notice. You wouldn’t want them trying to replace you before you have a new job. Good luck.
