Sample resignation letter job change

A sample resignation letter due to a job change, career growth, new job opportunity, change in your career path, etc., can be very useful if you have decided you are leaving and your next step is submitting your formal resignation.

Doesn’t really matter if you are a nurse or a security guard, it is still important to resign from your position professionally. 

If you have already discussed with your employer your intention to leave, it is time to submit your resignation letter.

Here are 4 key points to consider when structuring and writing your letter:

  • The date you are submitting your letter.
  • A clear statement indicating your intention to leave.
  • The last day of employment considering the notice period, giving your employer at least 2 weeks.
  • Keep your reason for resigning brief, but you don’t actually need to feel obliged to include it.
  • You can include a thank you statement, thanking your employer for the opportunity given and offer assistance in the transition (when possible).
  • Provide your updated contact information in case they need to contact you.
  • A warm closing statement and your signature.

Dear Mr./Mrs. {Recipient’s Name},

I am writing to inform you that I am resigning from my position as a {Your Position} at {Your Company}.

Working for {Your Company}, for the past {years} has been a wonderful experience.

I truly hope that my resignation does not cause you any sort of inconvenience. Please let me know what I can do to make this a smooth transition for the entire department. I will be completing my ongoing project of designing the logo for XYZ Company before my departure. Also, I am willing to help with the training of my replacement before I leave.
