A sample resignation letter due to far location is needed in the scenario where commuting to work takes longer than it should or your home is very far from your workplace.

In this case, many people opt for finding a new job closer to home or rearranging the way they commute to their job.

Additionally, some other people have to move around from one town to the next because their jobs require it and it can be exhausting.

Dear Mr./Ms. Last Name:

The purpose of this resignation letter is to inform you that I will be leaving my position with ABC Company, effective two weeks from now on October 1. I will be accepting a new position closer to home in the near future since it is less time for me to commute to it.

I have appreciated both being part of the ABC team and the opportunities that have been provided to me during the last several years. It has been a pleasure to work within the supportive, stimulating environment of our department, and I will truly miss the friends that I have made here.
