Dear Experts, I gave work my 2 month notice last week. It was initially approved by my manager but now she is forcefully requesting I extend my notice by one month. How should I react? Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#489 If they need more of your time, feel free to propose contract work at a reasonable rate. (@gradversity) Q#489 2 month notice is PLENTY. Offer to help find/train your replacement to ease transition. (@beneubanks) Q#489 Go out your terms, know what they are. If 2 weeks is standard, that's your terms. Suit up and show until your last day! (@DeborahShane) Q#489 2 months notice is a lot! Try to leave on good terms, but on YOUR terms. Difficult to work when on way out. (@keppie_careers) Q#489 If you WANT to accommodate, do. BUT you control your life & unless under contract leave on your schedule, may mean earlier too.
