Sample resignation letter leaving for another job

Looking for sample resignation letters when leaving for another job can be both exciting but also heartbreaking.

It could be that you just got a new job offer with a better salary or working conditions, it could be a better job opportunity to advance in your career or even better, a job offer abroad.

Just as you may have had to write your cover letter when you applied for your current position, it is necessary to write a formal resignation when leaving.

As an employee, it is recommended to talk to your boss or line manager first before submitting your resignation, however, be prepared for any counteroffers.

The main idea is to keep your letter brief, professional and polite, mentioning your intention to leave and the last day of employment.

In addition, consider giving your employer at least 2 weeks’ notice but if you need to submit an immediate resignation letter due to your circumstances, apologize for any inconvenience it may cause.

Ms. Joyce Michaels


ABC Company

15 Main St.

Sometown, MA 55555

Dear Joyce,

Please accept this letter as notice of my resignation from my position as a staff accountant. My last day of employment will be [date].

I received an offer to serve as a senior accountant of a Fortune 500 company, and after careful consideration, I realize that this opportunity is too exciting for me to decline.

It has been a pleasure working with you and your team over the last three years. One of the highlights of my career was collaborating with you to automate ABC Company’s accounting, financial, and balance systems and setting up your accounting infrastructure. Your company is poised for continued growth and I wish you much success with your upcoming acquisition of XYZ Company.

I would like to help with the transition of my accounting duties so that systems continue to function smoothly after my departure. I am available to help recruit and train my replacement, and I will make certain that all reporting and records are updated before my last day of work.

Joyce, thank you again for the opportunity to work for ABC Company. I wish you and your staff all the best and I look forward to staying in touch with you. You can email me anytime at or call me at 555-555-5555.

“I am sorry to inform you that circumstances dictate I must resign from my position as Division Manager. I prefer to leave at the end of this week, if that is convenient. If not, I will gladly comply with the company’s request to give two weeks’ termination notice.

Each year my financial obligations have increased; unfortunately, my salary here has not been able to keep up with these demands. As a result, I have been forced to reconsider my employment here and have concluded that it would be best for me to seek employment with a company better equipped to meet my financial requirements. Despite this, it is with mixed emotions that I have accepted a position elsewhere that carries a higher salary with possibilities for future advancement,

Please accept my thanks for the opportunity to work with you. The guidance you have given me has proved invaluable and has prepared me well for my new position. I have enjoyed the challenges presented here at Doe’s, and I sincerely hope that I have returned adequate service for all the benefits that I have received.

I would be happy to help you find and train a suitable replacement. Because my projects are current and because I have left detailed instructions illustrating how to perform my job duties on my desk, my successor should have little difficulty assuming my responsibilities. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help make this a smooth transition.”

“Please accept my regrets in resigning from my position as Stockroom Manager, effective two weeks from today’s date. Eager to pursue new challenges, I have decided to accept a job offer in a field more closely aligned with my course of study. My new position will put my talents and interests to work in a new and exciting area.

Although I have accepted a position in another field, it does not detract from the fact that my job at Doe’s has provided me pleasure as well as insight into my hopes for the future. I have enjoyed working with all of my friends here, and I want to thank everyone for their support over the years.

When my resignation date arrives, I expect all my projects to be current and my obligations fulfilled. If there is anything else I can do to help make this a smooth transition, please let me know.”

“Dear Ms. Gallisano,

I regret to inform you that I am resigning from my position here as a sales consultant. I would like to personally thank you for the opportunity you provided me to work alongside you at such a great company. I have learned many new skills here and wish you and the team all the best for the future.

I want to be completely honest and frank about why I am leaving the company. I have been offered an opportunity at a different company that is better aligned with my career goals. (If you’d like to be specific here, you can.) The training and education on offer at the new company will provide me with the tools I will need to keep growing as a sales consultant, with the goal to eventually move into a management position.

This was not an easy decision for me to come to, however, it is an opportunity I can not overlook.

I do not intend to inconvenience you with this news, and I hope you will accept my most sincere apologies for making the 25th of July my final day here. Thanks again for all you have done for me.

Kind regards,

Your name”

Robert Smith

Director, Human Resources

Acme Software

123 Business Rd.

Business City, NY 12345

Dear Mr. Smith,

I am resigning from my position as a production supervisor on September 15. This resignation letter provides you with two weeks’ notice to plan for job coverage or my replacement.

Working at Acme Software for the past twelve years was an opportunity that I appreciate. Starting as a production worker, I progressed through the ranks to my current supervisory role and I appreciate the help and support that I had from you along the way. I’ve enjoyed my coworkers and the company provides an excellent work environment for employees.

I have been offered the position of plant manager. This is a new job opportunity for me, a job opportunity that will not be available here for quite some time. So, I will pursue this new job opportunity even though I hate to leave Acme Software.

I started my new job on June 1 and had hoped to take several days of vacation in-between positions as I have not used any vacation time this year. Between now and then, I’d like to help with the transition of my job and responsibilities to another employee. It is my sincere wish that my leaving does not cause you undue hardship.

You’ve been a good boss and a good employer. I’ll help all that I can until I start my new job. Just let me know what you need me to do.

I wish you nothing but the best. I have been thankful for and happy in my job with Acme Software. My memories of Acme Software and my coworkers will be positive.
