  • Don't have to. You just have to put your notice in.

  • No you don't have to give a reason, if they ask you can either tell them or you can say that it really doesn't concern them. The boss asking may be trying to find out what to do to prevent others from leaving...sometimes people do exit interviews to see if there is something that they could have changed to make you more likely stay.

  • You do not have to give a reason. If asked all you may want to say is, it is for personal reasons. If you quit remember you can not draw unemployment. Leave on good terms . Give your job a weeks notice or ask them what they prefer so you will get a good recommendation.

  • You can say that it is time for you to move on, for personal reasons. No polite person would ask further questions.
