A resignation email is the last impression an employee leaves behind. Just as important as a good first impression, an employee’s job may be adversely affected by a bad exit strategy.
Below you will find several sample polite resignation emails for your successful resignation.

Sample 2 – Polite Resignation Email
Subject: Resignation for Joyce Thompson
Dear Ms. Love:
This letter is a formal notification that I will be resigning from office manager in ABC Radio on April 18th.
My reason for resigning at this time is to take care of serious family issues that only I can resolve. I will not be able to work during that time.
Since I am giving one month’s notice, I will be able to assist in finding and training a replacement. I will faithfully fulfill my responsibilities until April 18th.
I have had great job satisfaction working at ABC Radio and appreciate your understanding at this trying time.
If there is anything I can do even after I leave to further any projects, please don’t hesitate to ask me. I can be reached at 555-609-1234 or email@example.com.
