What should you include in your resignation letter?

Your resignation letter should include:
  • The date
  • Your position and the company’s name
  • A statement of intent to resign
  • The date of your last day of work
  • An acknowledgement of the opportunity (your chance to say thanks)
  • An offer to help with the transition
It's important to maintain professionalism in your cover letter. You should avoid making negative comments about the job or company. A well-written resignation letter can help to maintain a positive relationship with your employer and can leave a lasting impression.
