Dear Ms. Sargent,
I just wanted to confirm my resignation from my fulltime sales position at ABC Company in order to switch to part time hours. Since I am currently going back to university, my schedule only allows for me to work part time hours. My last day as a fulltime employee will be May 8, 2014 and at that time I will begin the part time schedule. I greatly appreciate your patience and cooperation with me during this time.
I am truly sorry for any inconvenience that may result from this situation. During my last week on the fulltime schedule, I will of course work as hard as always, and put forth every effort on my part time schedule. If there is anything else I can do, I would be happy to assist. If any clarification is needed in this matter, please feel free to contact me via phone at (555)555-5555 or email at [email] and I will get back with you immediately.
I am very thankful for the ability to continue working at ABC Company with reduced hours, as this will allow me to tend to my schooling simultaneously. I look forward to seeing what the future holds with this position. This job has provided me with some excellent experience which I will always be grateful for, as I am to you for your consideration.
