Hello everyone, I am in the dreaded situation of having to give notice to my boss about my departure to grad school. This would have been easier under normal circumstances, but mine aren't normal. Here's why: The boss, who is a VP at my organization, went out of his way to hire me as his second-in-command eight months ago The boss is a friend When I signed on, I was going through the application process, but I wasn't sure I would actually end up in grad school I didn't tell the boss I was planning to go to grad school I have only two weeks for the "notice" period (boss was away and I wanted an in-person chat instead of a text/email) I know there's no best way to break the news, but any tips would be greatly appreciated. I want to retain his friendship and goodwill even as I want to pursue my own next big move. This thread is perhaps a bit out of place, but I figured a lot of you already gave or are about to give notices to your own employers. Please help a friend out!
