Resignation Letter Template

A resignation is a personal decision but the following procedure are not. However, your resignation letter is in your control and it defines the settlement process. While angry letters delay proceedings on account of hard feelings, unprofessional ones delay due to lack of relevant details. Even emotional ones can delay things if your employer gets the wrong impression. It is therefore imperial that you get your resigning act right if you want things to happen on time. Remember, your first impression is lost but last impression will linger on. So make sure you don’t scribble your resignation like an undergrad’s love letter. Make it professional – typed and formatted – and hand-deliver it to your concerned authority. Keep it simple, precise, and positive. Appreciate your work, workplace, and the opportunities you got there. Mention all relevant details like designation, reason of quitting, date of resignation and last working day. And make an impression by wishing them luck for future.

SUBJECT: RESIGNATION DUE TO PERSONAL REASONS
