Dear [Ms. Love]:
This letter is a formal notification that I will be resigning from [office manager] in [NBC-TV] on [July 29th].
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 [February 28th].
I have had great job satisfaction working at [NBC-TV] 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 [345-609-1234] or [firstname.lastname@example.org].
Of course, every employer wants to know the reason an employee has decided to quit. They will want to know if there is a particular reason for resigning such as a disagreement with a co-worker or supervisor.
First of all, if you haven’t quit your job yet, you should do so with grace and respect. Leaving a job on the wrong foot can spell disaster for further employment.
