When you need to resign from your job to begin a new job opportunity, it’s important to do so in a professional way. Keep your letter positive, complimentary, and appreciative of your tenure with the company. You don’t need to elaborate on the reasons you are leaving, particularly if they aren’t positive ones.
Tips for Writing a Resignation Letter or Email for a New Job
1. Write a letter when possible
When time permits, send an official business letter after you speak with your boss. Send a copy to both your boss and the human resources office, so that the letter goes into your file. However, if time is of the essence, you can send an email instead. You can send the email to your boss, and carbon copy (cc) the email tohuman resources.
2.State the date
In your letter, state the specific date you plan to leave work. Try to give at least two weeks notice.Two weeks is considered the standard amount of time for giving notice.
3. Keep your reasons brief
You do not have to go into detail as to your reason for leaving. You can simply say, “I was recently offered a new position.” You may choose to provide a bit more information (for example,the name of the company or the position, or the reason you are taking this newjob). However, keep the letter brief.
You might need to ask your employer for a recommendation in the future.
Therefore, stay positive when you talkabout your current company. Don’t go into detail about how this new job is so much better than your current job. Express gratitude for the time you spent with the company.
5. Offer your help
If possible, offer your help during the transition period. You might volunteer to train the new employer, or help in some other way.
6.Provide contact information
Include an email address and/or phone number where you can be reached once you officially leave the job. You might include this information in the body of your letter,or in the return address. If you are sending an email, you might include this information at the bottom of your signature.
7.Follow business letter format
If you write a letter, be sure to follow proper business letter format. Include a header with the employer’s name and address, the date, and your name and address.
8.Edit, edit, edit.
Whether sending a letter or an email, thoroughly proofread your note before sending it. Again, you may need to ask for a recommendation from your employer, so you want all your writing to be polished.
