Good points. Now that I'm officially starting in my career I will definitely adhere to the two week standard notice. I'm glad I didn't now though because this next week I'm going on vacation before starting the new gig
Thanks for all the advice guys. Today was my last day and it went well. During my exit interview the owner and manager actually looked like they were gonna cry when I was talking to them, so apparently they really liked me.
I forgot if I stated this or not, but the firm I'll be starting with in a week is all men. Kinda funny working with all women and now all men. At least I can talk sports

Yeah I figured. Every time I see someone give notice it's always a shitstorm anyways, so my justification is not to care given their prior history. I won't ever use them as a reference and since I make no money I don't need the extra cash. It's gonna be an interesting experience.
Alright, so I graduated with a bachelors degree in accounting last May. Ive been working at a small bookkeeping firm as an "intern" for the past year and two months. I'm also still taking classes in order to pursue the CPA (I need 150 credits for the certification). I mostly work part time, but working nearly full time right now due to the holiday break from school. I've been looking for a new job for about 6 months now in public accounting and just received an offer from...
