If you are ready to hand your notice in and you are giving two weeks’ notice of your intent to leave the position you are working in then the notice period will usually have come from your contract of employment.
If this is not the case and you have just decided to give them two weeks’ notice then it might be an idea to consult your terms and conditions prior to writing your resignation letter.
If you are following the terms of your contract then handing your notice in is a very simple task, although nerve wracking for most people.
