Dear Mr./Ms. Last Name:

The purpose of this letter is to announce my resignation from Company Name, effective two weeks from this date.

This was not an easy decision to make, on my part. The past 10 years have been very rewarding. I’ve enjoyed working for you, observing how our production operations have expanded, and managing a very successful team dedicated to a quality manufactured product delivered on time.

I have accepted a position as VP, Manufacturing for Land Lubber Industries in Watertown, West Virginia. This opportunity gives me the chance to grow professionally and will allow us to relocate just a few miles from our families.

I wish you and the company all the best. I do hope our paths cross again in the future.

“Sub: Resignation

Dear Mr./Mrs. {Recipient’s Name},

I am writing this letter to resign from my position of {Your Position}. I sincerely regret the fact that I have to leave {Your Company}. However, due to the recent changes made in the company pertaining to {Write a change here, for example the introduction of a policy which outlines the deduction of 5% from an employee’s salary due to late coming}. Hence, I believe it is in my best interest to do so.

While I appreciate this initiative, which will surely ensure punctuality in the workplace, it would have been better had the total working hours and productivity of each employee being taken into account first. I always stayed back beyond my office hours, in order to ensure that my tasks for the day were complete. As a result, almost daily I clocked more than 8:30 hours.

For me functioning under this new policy has become difficult and hence I believe it is better for me to leave. I will miss being associated with {Your Company}. Working for {Your Company}, under {your manager/boss’s name} guidance has enlightened me in every aspect and has also given me the insights and hands on experience on how business in this industry operates. I learned from Mr. Shrirang {HR head} how to communicate with the union leaders and manage their demands. My colleagues and team members were very supportive and we developed a feeling of camaraderie. Thank you for making my tenure here an unforgettable one.

I will ensure that all the tasks currently assigned to me such as the {list your tasks, reports, projects: e.g., Safety inspection for Chakan Plant for this month}, before my official departure. I would also like to help in the transition of my duties so that my department will not face any inconvenience. Please do not hesitate to tell me anything I can help with.

Kindly accept this letter as my official notice of resignation. It has been a pleasure working with {Your Company}. Wishing everyone success in their future endeavours.

“Sub: Resignation

Dear Mr./Mrs. {Recipient’s Name},

I regret to inform you that I will no longer be working as a {Your Position} at {Your Company}. I have got an acceptance from College of Engineering, Pune for Bachelor of Engineering in Information Technology.

You know I have been trying to pursue engineering, especially in the IT branch. My father always wanted me to become an engineer. After my father’s death, it was you and your company who supported me. I thank Mr. Pratap Aiyaar to have hired me after my 12th. My job here has supported my mother and me both financially and emotionally. I have saved enough money for my engineering fees as well as to fund my living expenses. Also, the Government of India Scholarship will help me manage most part of the tuition fees.

Nick Corcodilos says that a degree is not necessary to have a successful career, but not having one means foregoing certain jobs. Becoming an engineer will open up new avenues in a job for me. I will be able to comfortably manage my home and my commitments thoroughly. My mother is overjoyed with the acceptance, her happiness knows no bound. I will always be grateful to {Your Company} for all the help I have received. My work here as a call center representative will be useful for my future aspirations. My communication skill has become stronger. I thank my team manager, Mr. Shetty to have accommodated my few errors in the beginning. He was very flexible with my shifts. I will also miss my colleagues. Their companionship has made my tenure pleasant.

Thank you once again for all the help. I will always be indebted to you. I hope to maintain a future relationship with you and {Your Company}. I wish everyone best.

Sincerely,

{Your Name}”
