Decide in advance how much notice you will give. In most jobs, it is customary to give at least two weeks of notice before your last day. This allows the company to transition your work to another person while you're still there.
While you're still talking together in person, decide on the best way to tell the team the news of your departure. Your boss may want to share it in a meeting or by email. Whatever you do, be sure that you don't share your news with anyone at work before your boss. You don't want your boss to find out about your departure through the grapevine.
After your meeting, document your conversation to your boss in an email. Reiterate the positive things you've shared. Include that you will be leaving and the agreed upon departure date.
In your last two weeks on the job, do your very best. Show up on time and stay late. Organize your files and your computer. Document important details. Be helpful and available. Follow these steps and be professional and you will leave your job on a good note.
