Frequently Asked Questions

What should I write in a resignation letter?

Writing a professional resignation letter involves addressing a few essential points to ensure a smooth departure. Here’s what to include:

  • Recipient: Address the HR department or your direct manager/boss.
  • Purpose: Clearly state you’re resigning from your position.
  • Departure date: Include your intended last working day.
  • Reason for leaving: If you choose to, briefly mention why you’re leaving (e.g., spending time with family, relocating).

How should a resignation letter start?

How you start a resignation letter will depend on who you are addressing the letter to. If you will be giving the letter to a boss or manager, you should address it to them directly. Resignation letters typically start with "Dear [Name]," but you should use any salutation that feels comfortable and appropriate for your workplace. If you are sending the letter to an HR department or a company as a whole, you can choose to refer to the entire company in the initial greeting of the letter. After your greeting, you should clearly state the intention of the letter, which is that you will be resigning and why. Basic resignation letter templates typically follow a similar format in terms of greeting and stating your intent at the beginning of the letter.

Is it appropriate to email a resignation letter?

Emailing a resignation letter is an acceptable way to alert your company or direct manager that you are leaving your position or the company. Some people choose to send a copy to just their manager, but you may also send it to the HR department at your company if you wish. You can also print out your letter of resignation and deliver it to the appropriate leaders within your organization in person or via mail. However, in many cases, an email is best to ensure everyone has an electronic copy for their records. While some companies use other platforms for day-to-day communication (like Slack, Zoom, Google Meet, etc.), it is still advised that you state your intent to leave in a formal letter so that it is viewable by all parties within your organization.
