Writing a Resignation Letter

Writing a resignation letter is not an easy task. To make matters worse, it is extremely important that the job resignation letter is written properly and with dignity. However justifiable their reasons may be, many people find it very hard to present the correct tone and message when writing a resignation letter.

For example, if you indicate when writing your resignation letter that you've found a more challenging career opportunity, it implies that you're bored or unmotivated with your current job. If you write that you're having health or other problems, you just documented on paper that you run the risk of being a poor hire. With your words on paper, it is very possible that the job resignation letter may come back to haunt you when a potential new employer contacts your former employers for a reference.

That said, after you have a firm idea of what you want to say in writing a resignation letter, begin with a couple of rough drafts first. Eventually you will be able to achieve the proper tone and message that you want to convey.
