Dear Mr. /Ms. Last Name:

I draft this letter to notify you of my imminent exit from your organization. This is to happen within a month from now. Though I cherish and would have wished to work for you in the long run, my time to depart from the firm has just come.

I happen to receive a job offer with better perks and allowances elsewhere. Furthermore, I made it plain to you from the beginning that I was just on my way to some greener pastures elsewhere. In other words, my stay in your firm was just a passing cloud.

My departure from your firm will bring about untold inconveniences. I am fully alive to that fact. That is why I offer my full support and cooperation during the transition phase. Feel free to reach me at XXX-XXX-XXXX or [email protected]

Lastly, I would wish to express my sincere gratitude for the support and cooperation you gave me while in your company. My special thanks go to my colleagues who encouraged and walked hand in hand with me all along.


Your Signature,

Your Name

Dear Sir/Madam,


I am writing this letter to inform you of my plan to quit my job soon. I have enjoyed my time in this place, but change is inevitable. I plan to be leaving officially on 4th Dec 2019. This is due to a dream job that I have been offered. I am a trained accountant, but I have been working here as a sales and marketing person. I feel I will be more satisfied if I joined my accounting career.

I am planning to do everything possible for the season I will be still around to give the company a smooth transition to my quitting. Kindly feel free to work with me for this transition. I would be glad if the company will be more productive even as I leave.

Do not hesitate to ask me anything regarding the company for the period left and even after I shall have gone. Thank you for trusting me with this job. I am so grateful for the lessons I have learned while here. I wish the company well in my absence. Kindly let me know when I can get my compensation and any employment benefits as I plan for my transition.

“  Subject: Resignation from your Company – Firstname Lastname

Dear Mr. /Ms. Last Name:

Kindly receive this letter as a gesture of my imminent exit from your company with effect from November 24th, 2019. Another company has offered me a more lucrative post in a different location.

Though I regret the move, I could not resist the juicy perks and higher pay rates. That is why I inevitably had to leave. My new post is even better in the sense that it falls well in line with my area of training and expertise.

I sincerely thank you for the time, support, and experience I gained while in my stay here. Indeed, I will live to cherish all of these in time to come. Specifically, I laud my colleagues with whom I rushed shoulders and worked hand in hand. I would never have gained as much without their input.

Kindly let me know whether my input may be necessary during the transition period. Should that be the case, feel free to reach me on XXX-XXX-XXXX.

“ Dear Sir,


I want to appreciate you for the season I have worked for this firm. The opportunity to work within this firm has given me the right level of experience. I don’t take it for granted. I, however, wish to let you know that I may not be part of this company come 4th Dec 2019. I have been offered my dream job, and I don’t think I am ready to let it go. I am a trained journalist. I feel I will be more satisfied in the journalism field than being a cashier in this firm.

My wish as I plan to go is that this company will grow in achieving its vision. In that line, I am working my best to train my team members. I am also trying to update my files to give a smooth transition. Even after I have left, I will be more than willing to hear about the success of this company. It is not so sweet to go, but I must. I appreciate you forgiving me an easy time for the seven years that I have been working with you. You are a good employer.

Thank you

Regards Rollan

Dear Mr Shah,

I am writing to you today to give my formal resignation from my role as Marketing Analyst for Travel Lite Ltd. My last day of work will be on the 15th of January, 2020. This was not an easy decision, but I have decided to pursue a career in education.

I am grateful for the experience and growth that Travel Lite Ltd. has offered me during my three years of employment. This experience will guide me as I move forward with my new career path.

I will fondly remember my time with Travel Lite Ltd. Upon my departure, I will return the electronic devices that Travel Lite Ltd. has provided me, including the mobile phone and laptop. I plan to contact all of my clients via phone and email to refer them to, Antonio Modric, fellow Marketing Analyst.

Please let me know how I can be of help during this transitionary period. I would be happy to assist in training my replacement.
