- Reaction score
So things haven't worked out -- I've only been on the job for 7 months (since graduating college), but I don't love the city in which I'm living. Aside from that fact, I like my job a lot and the people with whom I work...doesn't help that I've known all of them for 2+ years as I spent two summers as intern with the same group. An opportunity has come up for me in NYC, where I'd rather live (literally 90% of my friends are there, whereas I have just a couple non-work friends here). I tried to feel out my boss on moving (without mentioning why) and his reaction was a flat "No. We hired you for here. Maybe in a couple years." (I can't fault him for that but it was very unequivocal.) I've accepted an offer at this other firm in NYC and am wondering how to quit my job here. Problem is I'm a pansy. I work on a trading floor and I don't want a whole scene made of it. Moreover, I want to give two weeks' notice, but don't really want to work the two weeks (seems too awkward and painful to handle)...though I'm hoping they won't make me, given I'm on the private side and will be moving to another bank and working in the same group. So how do I quit professionally without having a scene made?
