How do you quit a job with only 1 days notice?

Ok, so I have worked here for almost a year but there is no chance for advancement or a raise. It's pretty much dead end. However, I don't want to burn any bridges.

Definitely take the better job, but ask if it's possible to give two weeks notice to your current employer first before starting the new job. Maybe the other employer was under the impression that you were immediately available and not tied down to another job or anything else. These mix ups happen.

Compromise, talk with your new employer and state that you would like to give at least one weeks notice to your present company out of professional courtesy and then explain to your present employer that although you would of liked to give two weeks notice, they need you to start in one.
