How to write Resignation Letters?

You may need a favor or recommendation from your present boss in future, therefore, show discretion, respect to him while tendering resignation.

3 Points to remember when writing resignation letter.

  1. Get straight to the point in your job resignation letter.
  2. State your intention to resign at the beginning of your letter of resignation.
  3. In your resignation letter, be sure to state the day/date, upto which you will be working with your present employer.

Don't forget to convey your thanks to your employer for the cooperation and the support he extended to you during your tenure with his company.
