Writing a “USA resignation letter.”

When writing a resignation letter in the USA, these are some of the things that you need to keep in mind.

  • If you are employed for one year or less, you must give a one-month notice period. If you are employed for more than one year, you must give two months’ notice.
  • If you give the required notice period, you are not obligated to give any reasons for quitting;  however, it would be best to tell your employer why you are leaving your job.
  • The first step is to tell your employer about leaving the job and the final work date. Keep it short, as the essential part of the letter is the last date of your work.
  • Thank your employer for the position and the opportunities you have enjoyed during your work period.
  • Ensure you proofread your letter before sending it to your employer. You can send the letter to your family and friend to check for grammatical errors.

“Dear Mr Don Cohen,

Please accept this letter as formal notification that I am resigning from my position as Account Executive with Marketing Media. My last day will be Thursday, March 2.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to work in this position for the past six years. I’ve greatly enjoyed and appreciated the opportunities I’ve had to grow our sales team and pipeline, be a part of creating a great product, and work with my colleagues, and I’ve learned so much about marketing strategy and the digital media space, which I will certainly take with me throughout my career.
