The Resignation Letter
The resignation letter should be written in a timely manner according to company policy. The standard is usually to give two weeks notice, but different companies may have different policies. So make sure you follow company policy appropriately.
Try to make the letter of resignation positive, by saying such things as:
1. I have enjoyed working here.
2. The decision to resign my position has been a difficult one.
If you are leaving due to undesirable work relations or conditions, it is best to not go into any great detail. You do not want to leave on a bitter note, and you never know when you may encounter any of the people you are currently working with again. As tempting as it
may be to "stick it someone" - don't. They are staying and you are leaving, so it is unlikely management will put great stock in what you say. The best ways to approach this are:
1. Explain you are looking for a better "fit" for you.
2. You are leaving for an opportunity that is simply too good to pass up.
