Leaving a Job on Good Terms

Savvy Community: How Do I Quit This Job Without Burning Bridges?

The politics of leaving one job for another is never easy. Reader akosijen posed this question in our Savvy Q and A group.

I was just recently offered a job for a big company, and offering a great opportunity. I've been with my current company (very small and privately owned) for almost 4 years, and it's the first company I've worked for since I got out of college. Luckily, the office is busy working on one project, but once that gets done (another month or so), we're going to slow down again. What's the best way to let them know that I've gotten another offer and put my two weeks in? I know it's never a good time for any small company to lose someone, but I've been waiting for this opportunity for awhile.
