Resignation Letter Templates

by | Nov 15, 2021

When attempting to draft your notice letter it’s better to stick with a template that covers the formal sides and leave the personal and sentimental sides to a personal conversation.

Here are two versions of a classic resignation letter you can use in almost any resignition situation:
