Dear Ms. Carr:
The purpose of this letter is to inform you of my resignation from my current position as Junior Auditor with ABC Wholesale Distributors, Inc. My last day of work will be Friday, March 10, 2000. I have accepted another position in Aurora, Illinois.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation for your guidance and counsel during the three years that I have worked under your supervision at ABC. I have learned a great deal about computerized auditing procedures and I am certain that the skills I have acquired will be of value throughout my career.
I know that I have been fortunate to have been associated with ABC Wholesale Distributors because I have learned so much about how important providing outstanding customer service is in today’s business environment.
Please use the address on this letter to send my final paycheck and any other official communications that may be necessary.
To keep your resignation letter short, simple, and positive you may want to write something like:
“I want to thank you for all you have done for me here at (Company). It’s been a pleasure working with you, and representing the company as your (job title).
I have accepted an offer with another firm and have decided to tender my resignation. My last date of employment will be (approximately 2 week notice). This decision has nothing to do with the exceptional opportunity you have provided me here. You and the company have been more than fair with me, and I genuinely appreciate all your support.
I wish (Company) continued success, and I want to thank you for allowing me to be a part of your team. Please feel free to contact me at any time if I can be of further assistance in helping with a smooth transition.”
