Letter of Resignation

A letter of resignation is written to announce to human resources, superiors, and co-workers an employee's intent to leave his or her current position.

A resignation letter not only describes the employee's intent to leave, but also provide information about the last day worked and other details. This eases the transition for both employer and employee. Often, resignation letters will also offer to help in the transition, whether it be recruiting or training the new replacement. In this way, both the employee and the employer can leave the situation with closure and a sense of respect and amicability. In order to maintain a positive and graceful exit, a letter of resignation often thanks the employer for the opportunities provided and mention experiences gained at the company or how the employee enjoyed their time there, all of which is covered in this letter.

Finally, a polished and professional resignation letter increases the chance of the employer giving a positive reference, and also serves official notice of the termination of employment with the company.
