If you look for “sample resignation letter ms word” you will find many options to choose from in terms of the availability to be downloaded, modified, printed, signed, and delivered.

However, let’s consider the reasons why you would have decided to leave your company (i.e. greener pastures, studies, going abroad, etc.) and whether you should or should not disclose them in your letter.  

When you think about writing your formal resignation letter letting your employer know you will be leaving your job, consider using a business letter format to write a professional resignation letter:

  • Use the company name on the first line the address, city, and postal code.
  • Include the date you are submitting your letter above the address.
  • Know who you are addressing your letter to (usually your boss or line manager) and use their first name.  
  • Make a clear statement about your intent to resign.
  • Mention the last day of employment considering giving your employer at least a 2 weeks’ notice period before you quit. If you are considering submitting an immediate resignation letter apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused.
  • You can choose to include your reasons for leaving or leave them out entirely. If you decide to include the reason, make it brief and there is no need to give too many details.

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.

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,


AJ Bergman”

Dear Mr. Francom:

ABC Company has provided me with many wonderful opportunities to learn and grow professionally and personally. It is with difficulty that I submit my resignation from my position as Director of Marketing effective January 15, 2010.

Due to personal circumstances, we have chosen to relocate our family to the New York area which necessitates my leaving a position that I have enjoyed and loved the past 3 years.

I am thankful to ABC Company for the many wonderful opportunities and the great memories I will take with me. I would also like to thank you personally for the support over the years.

If I can be of any assistance during this transition, please do not hesitate to ask.
