If you ever decide that the new job you just took is not working out for you there is a much better chance for you to ask for your job back. References – every job is going to ask you for work references and even if you don't tell them to, they can/will call your previous employers to see what type of employee you were. If you give notice you’re more likely to get a good reference than if you didn't. Courtesy for your current employer. Even though you may be leaving because you don't like your job or you are not getting the experience that you were looking for, it is still common courtesy to give notice. This allows the employer to find a new employee before your two weeks are up. This all so applies for your current co-workers. You don't want to leave them in a bind and having to do extra work. Make sure that you leave on good terms and you will never have to worry about your new or future employers giving you a bad review.
