Dear Mr. Neilson,

As you are aware, Tuesday is my final day with Digital Solutions before I begin my new position at Westwood Agency.

I wanted to write and express my deepest appreciation for all of your support and guidance during the five years I have been with Digital Solutions. When I began my career here, it was only as a social media manager, and under your leadership, I was able to grow into the role of a digital marketing manager. Though I am moving on to another opportunity, I remain grateful for the opportunity you originally offered me.

I hope we can stay in touch, and I wish you and the rest of the team continued success.

Yours truly,

Dear Mr. Myers,

As you know, tomorrow is my last day with Freedom Training Solutions, and I just wanted to express my gratitude for the support and leadership you have offered over the past two years.

My time with Freedom Training has been productive, enjoyable and one filled with tremendous personal growth. Under your guidance, I have been able to further develop my skills as a web developer and have gained in-depth knowledge of UX Design, something I knew almost nothing about when I began here. It would be a privilege to work for you again if the opportunity ever presents itself.

I wish you and the rest of the team continued success in your endeavors.

Dear Mr. Donahue,

Tomorrow is my final day with Data Refuge before I begin my new position with Education Software Solutions. I just wanted to take the time to express my appreciation for all of the support and guidance you have provided me over the past four years.

When I began working here, I was fresh out of college and, while eager, had no idea how to sell customers on products and services. With your mentoring, however, I have grown into one of the top-performing sales representatives and have even built my own sales team. Words cannot express my appreciation for your support as you helped turn me into the leader I am today.

I wish you and everyone here at Data Refuge continued success, and I sincerely hope we can stay in touch. I have included my contact information above.

With gratitude,
