The first thing that you need to do before moving to another job, is to write a resignation letter.
You must not just no-show one day!
Imagine the bad impression that you would leave on your employer and coworkers if you do so!
But one does not only write a resignation letter for appearance purposes.
A resignation letter also serves another purpose and that is to give your employer a chance to hire a replacement for you – and get you to train him or her.
The usual 2-week notice is sufficient for most employers to hire a new person and train them in your place.
You being around during those 14 days will help immensely.
This way, you will be able to train the new person on how the work is done first-hand, without your supervisor having to take out time from a busy schedule to do the needful.
To help you decide what you can put in your own resignation letter, here is a sample for you to go through:

Dear Ms. Henderson:
I am writing to tender my resignation from my position as a Fast Food Crew for The Food Truck on 2-weeks’ notice. Please note that February 9 will be my last working day.
Working as a crew member at The Food Truck for over 3 years has been an insightful and positive learning experience, and the decision to leave is unpleasant. However, at this point in time, I do not have a choice but to resign due to relocation.
During one of our conversations earlier this month, I mentioned that my family was in the process of deciding to move to New York, as my husband feels that there will be better opportunities for him there. He has made arrangements to be commissioned with a moving company in Brooklyn and has to join them within 45 days. I am afraid that I have no choice but to make this move in my stride and support him with this new venture.
During the transition period, I would be happy to help you hire and train someone to take up my place in food preparation and counter handling. I would appreciate it if you would issue a reference letter to me before my last day at work and also arrange for my outstanding dues.
I am humbled by all the love and mentorship I received from The Food Truck and will cherish these memories and experiences forever.
