Resignation Letters 

 

You got the offer, now what?The last thing we want to do when changing organizations is leaving your reputation and hard worked spoiled by a poorly executed exit.

It usually isn't easy to resign. Even if you did not like your position and can't wait to start that new job, it still can be difficult to resign diplomatically and tactfully. Think of your letter as a bridge builder and not a bridge burner as it could be kept on file for future reference. For example, it may be used when future employers request references, or in evaluating past performance if you re-apply for a job with a previous employer in a different position. Therefore, regardless of your reasons for resignation, NEVER make negative statements about your company, coworkers, supervisors, bosses, owners, or policies within this letter. This letter needs to remain professional and, if not positive, at least polite.

A resignation letter can help you maintain positive relationship with your old employer, while paving the way for you to move on. You never know when you might need that previous employer to give you a reference, so it makes sense to take the time to write a polished and professional resignation letter.

Your resignation letter should contain three main components:

· The effective date of your resignation.

· An explanation for your resignation.

· A brief mention of the positive aspects of working for your current employer.

Sample leading statements for a resignation letter include:

· It is with great reluctance I submit my resignation, effective ________.

· It is with regret and anticipation that I submit this letter of resignation, effective __________.

· Circumstances require that I resign my position as _______, effective ___________.

Note: It is normal protocol to allow at least two weeks notice prior to your date of resignation, but check your company's policies and whatever you agreed to when you were hired. Some companies will terminate an employee immediately upon resignation (regardless of what you offer), so be prepared for this.

Counter Offer Advice

Keep the ego out. Receiving a counter-offer can make you feel great. Everyone would. It is as though your employer has realized what you bring to the table and does not want you to leave now that another company has made you an offer. You may think that your hard work and skills have paid off and now you have them right where you want them; or do you?
