My boss expects me to let him know if I plan to quit. He told me some time ago. So, the company that I work for is a small buisness and my workforce is not easy to replace.The hiring process could take significantly longer than I have a notice period.
And now I'm actually thinking about applying away. If I tell him, I have no advantage. Maybe that will give me more stress at work and will force me to do a worse job, which I don't really want.
If I don't say it, he'll ask me why I wouldn't have mentioned it before and he'll put pressure on me for the rest of the time.
What is the best way to deal with the situation?
