Write a Resignation Letter
Edited by Hotelier, Amanda, Eng
Hello, and thank you for watching VisiHow. In today's tutorial, I will show you how you can write a resignation letter. If you've decided that you're going to leave your job, the first thing you need to do is sit down with your boss and inform them. After you have passed that step, it's a nice thing to submit a resignation letter formally to the human resources department. It can be kept with your personal file. This is especially good if you would like to keep your boss or another manager or colleague as a reference. It's also nice to have on file if you're leaving on good terms, and may return to the company in the future.
- 4Begin with a statement of intent. For example, "This letter is to formally announce that I am leaving my position as Assistant at XYZ company." Include the job title and the company name. Follow this with a line that mentions our last working day. For example, "My last day will be", and it should follow the employer's policy. If we're in the United States, the policy is often that we must give two weeks notice. We can sometimes give longer, but the typical period of notification for leaving a job is two weeks. This may be different in different areas or companies, however.Start the body of the letter one line below the greeting.
- 9If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please leave them in the space below.This concludes our tutorial on how you can write a resignation letter.Advertisement
