You could give your employer two weeks' notice of your resignation, or you could do something incredibly different — like bake them a cake.

The latter may sound unbelievable, but according to a recent survey by staffing service OfficeTeam, some managers say people have done everything from delivering resignation cakes to going out for lunch and never coming back.

Quitting a job is something that is quite personal, but some people's processes have even gone viral. In 2013, writer and comedian Marina V. Shifrin's made an interpretive dance/music video when she quit her job, and last fall, one woman quit her reporter job on air.

The survey, however, which took results from more than 600 HR managers in the U.S. and Canada, found that quitting a job (for any reason) did have an effect on future career opportunities.

And while these few examples may seem hilarious or silly (depending on your viewpoint), quitting a job is really figuring out what works best for you and your career goals. Being in a discouraging work environment, not feeling like you're growing, or having a boss who is a tyrant are all valid reasons to go ahead and find another job.

The OfficeTeam survey has listed strange and out of the box ways people have left their jobs. Have a story to share? Let us know in the comments below:
