Resignation letter for personal reasons with one month notice (Samples)

In this brief blog post, we will provide examples of resignation letter for personal reasons with one month notice.

Resignation letter for personal reasons with one month notice

A resignation letter for personal reasons with one month notice can be written in basically any case and for any reason.

It is recommended to hand in your resignation with at least a 2-week period notice so the company can overcome some logistic challenges and have a replacement on time to start as soon as possible.

However, in some cases, you may be asked to hand in your resignation letter for more than 2-4 weeks, even a month depending on the company policy.

As with any resignation letter, the letter should be kept formal, simple and concise. Usually, the first line includes your intention to resign, the name of the company and the date you will be leaving.

Then, it is important to express your appreciation and be thankful for the time you spent with the company without having to be too detailed. 

Finally, ending on a positive note is recommended where you can offer your best wishes for the future of the company and offer any additional assistance, when possible, during your transition period.
