I recently put my two weeks notice into a company that I had worked at for 5 years. At most previous jobs I've had fantasies about quitting, but this job I thoroughly liked. My boss (the CEO, it's a small company) was generally good to work for, the pay was good, and the work wasn't bad. I informed him and HR about my notice and as expected he was very distraught, but I just kept telling him that I liked working here. I also mentioned that it's just time for me to move on for my career and that I'd do whatever possible to make the transition easier.
I'm now a week into my notice and I knew that it wouldn't be possible for them find a replacement for me so soon (it'll most likely take months). My job is very unique, I have multiple ongoing projects and support tasks I need to take care of with my clients. My boss hasn't spoken to me since the day I gave him my notice and I'm not really sure what to do. He hasn't announced to the team that I'm leaving, which means the one person that could possibly take over my duties isn't up to speed on them at all. I would also like to alert my clients to my departure, but I have no new point of contact for them. I've never been in such a vital position and held so much responsibility when quitting before, so I'm not sure what to do if my boss won't talk to me.
