I think I'm overthinking a simple problem but had an interview last week & was told I'm one of two being considered for a new job & will be advised one day early this week. So 50% / 50% chance I know but am still hopeful ... So my current employer & our team leader (2 separate people) are away at conference overseas from tomorrow until next Tuesday. I do have to provide 4 weeks notice in this current job; so is it impolite/unprofessional to email them my resignation - still meet with them obviously on their return - or do I wait this extra week to meet them & hand in my notice personally. First world problem I know but having to give 4 weeks notice could mean more inconvenience to the new job IF of course I get it. See what I mean by overthinking, lol
Remember that your new employer will expect you to have a notice period - it's completely standard - and that 4 weeks is actually quite short! I think you are right about speaking face to face to hand in your notice, it's a lot better than an email.
