Hi, I'm Laura from and I'd like to talk about how to write a resignation letter. Use the resignation letter as an opportunity to leave a good last impression of yourself. You could write it...and you should use a formal business letter format, which usually has an inside address, a return address, and then a formal salutation followed by a colon. Skip down two lines, and then begin the body of your letter. In the body of the letter, state why you're leaving and what the time frame for your resignation will be. For example, if you're giving two weeks notice. And thank the...thank your employer for the opportunity to work for them. Be very courteous in your letter. Also be sure to proofread it, and check for any spelling or grammatical errors. You want to leave...make this a very polished good-by. Skip down two lines, end with a closing such as Sincerely, with a comma. Leave space for you to sign the letter, and then print your name underneath, and your title. So when you're ready to print the letter, print it out and sign it. And that is a little bit about how to write a resignation letter.
