Retail Jobs – Writing a Resignation Letter

* Always be positive. The best way to view your resignation is that you are writing to your most recent and applicable reference, not your old job. No matter how disillusioned you felt, you have to appear to be positive and above all professional.
* It is always advisable to put your resignation in writing, no matter what company policy is. Try to include some positive statements as you will soon be asking for a reference.
* The only occasion it is not advisable to write a letter of resignation is if you feel that you have been forced to leave. If you have been put in this position, through what you feel is tantamount to harassment of any kind, your best bet is to seek legal advice before putting anything in writing. Again, if you were left with no choice but to leave, writing a letter of resignation may well effect any application for benefits.
Here are some examples of resignation letters which you may wish to follow:

Example 1

Dear ______,

I would like to effect my resignation immediately. Taking into consideration my holiday and resignation period as written in my contract of employment, I calculate my last date of employment with ________ to be __/__/__.

Yours sincerely,
