Writing a PWC resignation letter

A resignation letter is a letter you write to your boss if you have decided to quit your job because you are unhappy, you found a new job, you want to take care of a health issue, or any other reason. Writing a good resignation letter increases chances of being rehired in the future, and also leaves a positive impression on your employer.

Some of the tips of writing the perfect resignation letter are:

  • Regardless of your reasons for leaving your job, communicate your decision to your employer in a positive and polite way. Avoid complaints about the company, your manager or coworkers.
  • Start your letter with an introduction; a formal salutation, address the recipient by name and, if you prefer, use a standard greeting such as “Dear\ [First name],” or “Hello [First name].”
  • The next step is to tell your employer about leaving your job and the final work date. The standard notice period is two weeks; however, your company might have specific instruction around what your last date of work should be. Keep your letter short as the essential part of the letter is the Last date of your work. 
  • Indicate the reason you are leaving your job. It would be best to be polite as you will leave a positive impression on your employer. Maintain your composure when drafting the letter.
  • Finally, thank your employer for the position and the opportunities you have enjoyed during your work period. A statement of gratitude, helps foster a peaceful transition.

Example: “I am grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from the best and grow as a designer. I will always cherish the experiences I had working with you and the team.”

  • You can choose to list any key information the recipient should be aware of regarding your transition. The last step is to end your letter with a departing statement such as “Sincerely,” or “Thank you,” and your name.

Subject: Farewell and QUEEN BEY ALL DAY!

Hello XXXXXX Team,

After careful consideration, I will be ending my employment with PwC effective Monday, November 11th.

I’ve done two audit internships, one at Deloitte and one at PwC. I hated it then but I thought I’d give it a third try. Third time’s a charm right? GTFOH(If you don’t know what it means Google it!) Basically, my time here as an associate has confirmed everything I already knew ten times over. Auditing is a job for people who truly don’t have any other options and don’t know what else they could be doing. You work day in and day out pulling useless documentation and filling out useless workpapers that won’t really benefit anybody. All of it is BS! After asking dozens upon dozens of auditors what they think of their jobs and getting responses that include “I love my job!” or “I wouldn’t trade it for the world,” I realized just how fake auditors can be.

I strongly believe that auditors hate their lives and try to rationalize every piece of it. “Oh it’s just busy season” or “If everybody did the jobs they loved to do then there would be nobody doing the jobs that need to be done.”


Sample 3:

“Dear [name],

As many of you now know this friday will be my last day with PwC so I wanted to say good bye and thank you for everything. My decision to leave was not a snap decision as it may have seemed but a well thought out process.

It started one night in the audit room as I was helplessly attempting to focus on some inane, completely irrelevant task so I could leave when the green card carrying cleaning lady came into my cage to empty my garbage when my decision was made. I realized that I was actually jealous of her job. I would have gladly emptied the garbage cans in the whole building over any of the nonsense I was doing on my computer.  See, at the end of her shift she has made a difference, she has added value, be it minimal, of removing the refuse from the employees cubes. At the end of the day she sees the empty garbage cans and knows that she accomplished something. When trying to apply this mindset to my own work I found it to be impossible.

At the end of my shift, I will have documented a control, that was only created for the sake of having a control, and my work will get picked apart by anal retentive managers, but ultimately find a home in a cabinet somewhere, only to see the light of day again when it is thrown out in 7 years when it is deemed to be irrelevant.

I have added zero value to the client, zero value to my own company, and it has made me routinely daydream about ways to off myself. I find it very hard to be motivated when I know the end result of my work has no impact on anything but simply must be completed because PwC audit guide says it must be completed. What makes this entire process worse is the fact that those around you insist that this work is crucial to the world’s existence and it is essential that you never use abbreviations, that your sheets must be as colorful as possible, and all lines must be drawn with a ruler or else it is clear that PwC will come apart from its hinges.
