last day is..... Don't get into reasons why or "if this would have

I wrote my resignation letter yesterday and delivered it today with the
customary 2 weeks given. My boss was floored.


I've been following the discussion on the 'axe in the dark' with interest
and now I have a question. So, I've just accepted an offer with another
company, and I spoke with my supervisor earlier this week and he suggested I
supply a letter of resignation. The truth is, I've never written a letter
of resignation, this is my first job out of college.

Anyone have an opinion on what should be included? It seems fairly straight
forward--I'm leaving, I won't be back, I'm not working for a competitor,
best of luck, bye-bye.

Does it need anything else?
