Turning in your two weeks notice can be terrifying__because no matter how well you think you know your supervisor, you can never be 100% sure of his or her reaction. Will he be furious and insist on walking you out the door immediately? Will she beg you to stay, enticing you with an enormous raise? Or will he be completely civil and wish you the best of luck?
Spot the Signs. The most obvious sign that you'll receive this reaction is if you haven't had a healthy relationship with your manager in the past. Maybe you continually challenged his ideas, and he took that as a sign of disrespect. Or, maybe she always made unreasonable demands, and you were never able to see eye_to_eye on your to_do list. Or perhaps his moods were completely unpredictable. In any case, if your relationship has been strained, you may receive a less_than_ideal response to your two weeks' notice.
