How to Write a Resignation Letter

We have been contacted by many people through our social media accounts who are not sure how to write a resignation letter so here is our guide:

  • Your letter must be polite and of course formal. Never mention anything negative about the company, organisation or your former colleagues.
  • Your resignation letter will probably be kept on your employee file so remember that when you are writing your letter.
  • Don’t forget to thank the company for the opportunity
  • Give notice period and work until your last day.
  • You don’t have to give any reason however if you feel like you must then keep it professional.
