What should you include in your resignation letter?

While a resignation letter is an official document, it doesn’t need to be long or complicated.
The most important inclusion is your notice of resignation and last date of employment. This will help your employer plan your departure and handover your responsibilities.
It’s also a good idea to recognize the opportunity your employer has given you. While the template includes an example letter, you might like to personalize it by mentioning specific people or experiences you’re thankful for.
In addition, offering support during the transition period can help maintain a positive relationship with your employer in your final weeks and beyond.
