I am just sending this letter to let you know that unfortunately I will be resigning from my position as assistant manager at Smith Communications. Although nothing bad has happened I am resigning for personal reasons. My last day at work will be June 15, 2014, so please consider this to be my official two weeks’ notice of resignation from Smith Communications. I appreciate your understanding.
It is my plan to do all in my power to minimize inconvenience caused to anyone at Smith Communications by my resignation. I will put forth every effort to facilitate a smooth transition, including selecting and training a replacement to take over my responsibilities. If any further discussion is needed in this matter, I hope I can look forward to hearing from you in the near future. My telephone number is (555)555-5555 and my email address is [email]
I am grateful for the experience and opportunities I have gained while working at Smith Communications and will miss the great work environment. The rest of the staff has been great and I hope to keep them from suffering any stress or added responsibility due to my resignation. I wish Smith Communications continued success and thank you for your consideration.
