Currently I'm in late stages of interviewing with a company and I'm fairly confident that they'll extend an offer that I'll accept.
That being said, I'm trying to plan out when to give my two weeks notice.
If I were to give my two weeks this Friday (which is unlikely to happen just due to not having an official offer yet, but is still possible) I would have the following schedule:
- 2 Weeks of work
- A week where I would be available to work for two days and then I have three days off for a (personal) trip
- Start my new job the next week
I'd like to minimize the amount of time I'm going unpaid between jobs. Would it be unprofessional to, instead of giving notice this coming Friday, give notice the next Tuesday that my final day will be the Tuesday before my trip?
It seems to me that two-weeks notices almost always occur on a Friday, but other than being a bit odd, I see no particular issue with doing it on another day of the week.
I work a Monday-Friday day job and there's nothing in my contract specifically about the notice period.
This question is similar, but I think it's different enough that this warrants its own question:
