How to Quit Your Job

Quitting My Job to Travel: Any Tips?

This post was shared by reader jchild in our Ask Savvy group.

So I have been planning for over a year to quit my job and travel! I know most people would say in this economy it is a bad idea but I have established myself pretty well in my industry and have done well for myself, however, after all the hours are worked I still feel like I need to explore the world since I am under 30 and don't have any other responsibilities but myself. I have a big trip to China already in the works for late November and it has finally come time to let my employer know about my plan. But now I am curious what is the best day of the week to give notice and how much notice should I give them more than 2 weeks? I, of course, don't want to burn any bridges but have been planning for this trip for a while and I am excited for the change! Any tips would be great.
