Whatever your reason is for resigning, like for example you don't like your boss, the work is too hard for you, you do not like your working schedule or you're working a very long hours, the work is boring for you or maybe you have gotten a best offer. You should always assume responsibility for your resignation and do not blame someone else or your boss for your resignation.

When you write a resignation letter you should provide an acceptable reason, it can be because of your health, a member of your family needs to transfer in a different location and you need to go along with the transfer or you wish to change career directions.
