Sample Letter of Resignation

We understand that resigning can be an emotional and stressful experience.  Your Epic Search Partners recruiter can help you through the details of your resignation.  

We recommend that you prepare a resignation letter. This letter should be brief and very formal. Your letter should be addressed to your immediate supervisor and a copy should be sent to your Human Resource Department.  

Then, you will make an appointment with your manager to respectfully explain your decision.  Your manager needs to hear that your decision is firm and that you are committed to your new employer.  Express appreciation for the opportunities your former employer has given you.
