Here’s a simple resignation letter template to get you started.

PART 1

A Resignation Letter’s Fundamentals

 

 

There’s no need to be flowery or imaginative at first; simply announce your resignation and the date it will take effect. While you presumably told your manager why you’re leaving, you don’t have to go into detail here—keep it concise. (An “I quit” video isn’t required.)

Greetings, [Name of Your Boss],

Please accept this letter as formal notice of my resignation from [job title] at [Company Name]. [Your last day—usually two weeks after you give notice] will be my last day.

PART 2

 

Gratitude

 

Next, thank your employer for the opportunity and describe some of the major things you’ve learned and liked while on the job. Even if you’re overjoyed to be going, this is true. Remember that you may need these people as references in the future, and ending with a positive tone will leave a good impression.

 

Thank you so much for giving me the chance to work in this position for the past [number of years]. I’ve thoroughly loved and valued the opportunity I’ve had to [a few of your favorite job tasks], and I’ve learned [a few particular things you’ve learned on the job], all of which I will carry with me throughout my career.

PART 3

 

Transition

 

Finally, express an interest in assisting with the transfer. You don’t need to go into great detail (and certainly don’t promise anything you can’t keep), but a few lines expressing that you’ll make sure your responsibilities are completed smoothly will demonstrate that you’re committed to the task until the conclusion.

 

During the last two weeks of my assignment, I’ll do everything I can to complete my tasks and train the rest of the team. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to assist you during this time.

 

I wish the organization ongoing success and look forward to keeping in touch.

Sincerely,

[Your Name] is a placeholder for [Your Name].

Feel free to tweak this to fit your experience and corporate culture, then submit it through your firm’s standard protocols.

 

Sure, it may languish at HR for all eternity, but you can count on two things: one, your old boss (and future reference) will read it and be impressed. Second, if you ever decide to return to your firm (hey, it happens), it’s a good thing you have a great, professionally written resignation letter on file.
