The resignation letter can be a reassurance to your employer. It says,
between the lines, that:
You are leaving on good terms
It's your choice
You won't sue them for wrongful discharge
You aren't going to immediately collect unemployment (you may if the
new job doesn't work out for some reason)

I have used a favorable resignation letter to leverage a great letter of
recommendation from an boss that normally won't write them.

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

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?
