In order to leave your job gracefully, it is recommended to send a two weeks notice letter to the employer on good terms.
Although, you have no obligation to provide two weeks’ notice resignation if you are not working under a contract, or in a state that follows the ‘Employment-At-Will’ principle.
You may just leave the company any time by giving an immediate resignation letter. On the other hand, a 2 Weeks’ Notice Letter shows your professional manners.
If you do not provide adequate notice, not only you will burn the door of re-employment, but you will also withdraw yourself from future benefits.
If you’re leaving when your company is facing a difficult time, think about giving resignation on reasonable notice.
Don’t put your new job at risk or let your previous employer take advantage of you.
In your resignation letter, be positive and say how the company has benefited you professionally.
Offer assistance during the changeover and afterward. Don’t be unenthusiastic. There’s no end – you’re leaving, and you should leave on good terms.
In the following 2 Weeks Notice Letter Sample (Good Terms), you will note that the employee does not say anything extra except resigning.

Dear Mr. Doe:
Please accept this letter as my formal resignation from my position as Customer Relations Officer on two weeks’ notice effective August 14
