Template for Resignation Letter
When it’s time to leave, one must first reflect upon how to quit my job professionally. The first step is to let your supervisor or boss know verbally, but then follow up with an official letter of resignation (or provide the letter in the meeting with your boss). The letter of resignation serves as official notice that you are leaving the company and provides confirmation of key details, such as your last day with the company and any “housekeeping” items you need to confirm (return of company property, continuation of health insurance benefits, etc.).
Do not include any negative information in your resignation letter. Don’t disparage your supervisor(s), co-workers, the company, or its products or services. Your letter of resignation will be kept on file and what you say may influence any future reference checks.
Whenever possible, hand-deliver your letter of resignation. Below is a template for resignation letter.
