Lucky Strike Tavern

123 Roberts Road

Plainfield, Illinois 60585

Dear Ms. Brown,

I am writing to inform you that I am resigning from my position as the manager at Lucky Strike Tavern. I have greatly enjoyed my time working here, but I was recently offered a position that I think can better help me reach my career goals. My last day of work at Lucky Strike Tavern will be April 15, which is two weeks from today, so I hope that you accept this letter as my two-weeks’ notice.

*My decision to leave Lucky Strike Tavern comes only because of the new opportunity I was presented with, as I have loved working here for the past two years. I will miss my fellow servers and bartenders, as well as the constant support I receive from you and the rest of the management team. Thank you so much for the opportunity to work for you as a server, and I hope that we can keep in contact.

Best wishes,*”

Sample 4:

“Dear Mr./Ms. [name]:

It is with great regret that I must inform you that in two weeks’ time I am resigning from the managerial position. 

I understand that my departure will cause a disruption, and I will do everything in my power to facilitate the smooth transition of duties to my replacement.

My decision to resign is not due to any shortcomings from this restaurant, but to a recent diagnosis of a severe health problem. I was advised by my physician to cease working as soon as possible. 

With much consideration, I must agree with my doctor’s recommendation, because I cannot function at the typical level that I have no doubt you have come to expect, and focus on my health at the same time. 

While working here, the support and encouragement I have received and the connections I have made, both professional and personal, have been invaluable. 

I will miss the challenging nature of my work and the enjoyable atmosphere and coworkers. I will always be grateful.
