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.

“ 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. Rodriguez,

Please consider this my resignation letter from my position as HR Assistant at Manufly Communications, effective September 30th.

The past four years at Manufly have been incredible. I have enjoyed working here and feel that I am leaving with a great deal of experience. However, I have expressed my interest to move up the ladder many times over the years, and I see that this position does not have as much room for growth as I had originally anticipated. I feel that I need to move on and seek a position that allows for more responsibility and professional career growth. 

Being your assistant has been very enjoyable over the last few years, but sadly I must move on in order to do what is best for me and my career. I hope to stay in touch and I want to thank you again for the time we shared together. I wish you all the best.
