Unfortunately, sometimes you need to resign from your post earlier than expected. And it’s just not possible to provide the standard two weeks notice before resigning. Perhaps you have personal circumstances you need to look into or the working environment has become uncomfortable and you decide to leave immediately. However, it is best to weigh in the positive and negative impact of resigning without a two weeks notice before resigning.

Temporary jobs are helpful when you want to have a job before that permanent position or when you just want to work for a short period of time.  So, it is expected for you to leave your temporary position for a permanent one.

However, do not leave your job abruptly and without notice. Explain the situation with your employer. Formally discuss the circumstances as to why you can no longer complete the temporary job position. You may also see Career Goals to Help You Achieve Your Dream Job

As for your future employer, inform them of the situation first hand. If you sign the contract, indicate the date you would join their company. It is only right to discuss to them in advance that you are currently with a temporary job to help your future employer adjust and give you enough time to reach an amicable agreement with your current employer.

Temporary jobs, be it for a few days, weeks or months are helpful for your resume. Always inform your employer of the professional direction you are about to take. When you decide to leave, inform them in advance to help them find a replacement for you and help them transition with a new employee smoothly. Always exit the job graciously and on a positive remark. You may also see How to Write a Job Resignation Letter
