Sample resignation letter Doc

A sample resignation letter in a DOC document or PDF format is useful when you need to write your resignation letter to your current job.

It doesn’t really matter if you work in construction, education, hospital, or if you are a physician or a manager.

There is a standard or basic format you can follow to write your resignation letter:

  • Keep it brief and straight to the point. Begin your letter with a greeting using the recipient’s name.
  • Include only highlights and positive comments. In the body of your letter, state your intention to resign and include briefly the reason for quitting. 
  • Include your notice period of at least 2 weeks. However, inform yourself about the notice period of your employment contract.
  • Thank your employer for the opportunity.
  • Offer help during the transition (e.g. Training your replacement).
  • Close and sign your letter.

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.

I hope you don’t have any issues in finding a replacement. I’m sure you won’t as you are an excellent supervisor and a wonderful person.

If there’s anything I can do to help, please let me know.

Sincerely,

Dear Ms. Mae,

I, AJ Bergman, present to you this letter of resignation from my current position of children’s counselor at the YMCA Family Center, effective February 30th, 2017.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the years of enjoyable and fulfilling employment. I have learned a lot during my time here and will be leaving with many great experiences and fond memories.

I would be happy to help find a replacement and train them, as I know this is somewhat short notice and out of the blue. I hope you realize my quitting is in no way a reflection of your ability to manage, but I must move on for personal reasons.

Best regards,

[Signature]
