Template: Letter of Resignation

Published on April 26, 2019

I seems to be the go-to-guy for a resignation template.

So here’s mine, written in Feb 2018, one year ago when I left ShopBack:

Letter of Resignation

It is nothing more than a formal email with a few essentials:

  • Subject: Letter of Resignation
  • To your bosses and HR
  • Formally say you are resigning
  • State your last day (which you should have discussed with your direct boss)
  • Send before your notice period

The rest are just casual bits to lighten the mood 😎

You will also probably sum up why you are leaving, what you are going to do next, and thank them.

It is a very personal letter. I even bcc my buddy who knows of my decision.
