Sample resignation letter copy and paste

Here we will see sample resignation letters where you can just copy and paste, and adjust it to your own circumstances giving your personal touch.

If as an employee you have decided to resign for a new job or just because you have decided to shift your career path or want to pursue your studies full time, then you need to formally inform your employer about your decision and leave under the best of terms.

We know for some people, writing a resignation letter can be both scary and exciting (especially if you already have a new job lined up), but it doesn’t have to be a complicated process.

However, if you might need a recommendation for future employers to make sure to keep a positive and courteous language.

According to Alison Doyle from The Balance Careers, here is a list of Dos and Don’ts to consider:

  • Do’s:
  • Keep it positive
  • Provide a formal letter
  • Offer to help with the transition
  • Don’t:
  • Brag about your new job (of you have one already)
  • Tell the whole truth during your exit interview
  • Quit without notice

Dear Mrs. Augustine,

I must regretfully inform you of my resignation from the Beardall Senior Center. My last day will be August 20th.

Working at the Senior Center has been one of my favorite jobs I’ve had and I couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to work alongside. Thank you for being so understanding about my family situation and constructing a schedule that allows me to be home for my children as much as possible.
