Resignation Letter Example


Name of Manager

Company Name


City, State, Zip Code

Dear Name of Manager:

I'm writing to resign from my job. I've enjoyed working at Smith Company. But, I have found an opportunity that will give me experience using several skills that I can't apply in my current job. My last day is (two weeks from the date of the letter).

I will miss working with you as you have been a good mentor and encouraged me to continue to develop my skills. I have also enjoyed working with most of my coworkers. Smith Company customers were fun to serve and I will miss them, too.

I'll watch as you continue to offer successful service to my favorite customers. If I can help you train my successor or answer any questions that will help you train my replacement, please let me know. I don't mean to leave you short handed and I have written out the most common procedures that I followed in my job. I'm willing to do whatever I can to help.
