Job Resignation Letter
A Job Resignation letter is given to the company when the employee has decided to leave the company. There is no particular reason for which an employee may take the step as the reasons can range from a better job offer from a different company, personal commitments elsewhere or the fact that the job may not suit the employee. Regardless of the reasons, the company must be informed through some means about this development.
The most common and accepted way is by submitting a formal Resignation Letter. The employee must submit his/her resignation letter to the company by the terms and conditions of employment for his resignation to be effective. The letter must be brief and concise in its content and may or may not include the reason for the resignation based on the writer’s discretion. The letter must avoid any unnecessary antagonizing and must exude politeness and respect throughout.
The following is an example of a Job Resignation Letter.

Dear Mr. Button,
With this letter, I am officially tendering my resignation from the post of Project Leader at Fairmont Industries with effect from September 1, 2010, giving the one month notice as stipulated in my contract. It is with deep and sincere regret that I have to make this difficult decision after having worked at Fairmont for seven years.
I am grateful for the many opportunities given to me in learning the ropes and enhancing my skills in the various projects that were undertaken by the team and me. I would like to express my deepest and most heartfelt appreciation for all the guidance and support to me in the different projects undertaken by me during my tenure here. I had had an excellent time working at this company with such a hardworking staff and a pleasant atmosphere which enabled us as individuals to do our best when it came to our specific tasks and duties.
If anything is outstanding that you would like me to clear before my last day, please feel free to inform me. I shall be ready to train and hand over my responsibilities to a successor of the company’s choosing as and where the business requires it. I wish the company the very best in its future endeavors.
