  • I think it depends on why you're leaving, if it's something that's not personal, like you're moving out of area, or something like that, you can put that in the letter, but if it's because you got a better job, I don't think I would say that.

    How about something like - "While I have really enjoyed my time working here, and I greatly appreciate the opportunities this job has given me, unfortunately, I have to give my 2 weeks notice at this time. (If a better job, leave it at that.) Make sure you date it.

    If it's because you're moving, or something like that, then say "I have really appreciated the opportunities that working for ___ has given me, but my family and I are moving to ___, (or, I have decided to go back to school full time so I won't be able to fulfill my duties here). I'm sad to say that I have to give you my 2 weeks notice at this time.

  • If it's so you can have a baby or something like that, you could say

    "I'm very excited to announce that I am going to be having a baby. While this news is very welcome to me and my family, I am sad to say that it interferes with my ability to continue working here. So, it's with mixed feelings that I have to give you my 2 week notice at this time."

    Make sure that you date all your letters, and, possibly be prepared that they ask you to stay an extra few days to help train your replacement, or even that they decide they don't want you to stay the full 2 weeks.

  • [Recipient's name] [Company name]

    Dear [Recipient's name]:

    Please accept this letter as my notice of resignation from [Company name], effective [date, two weeks from date above]. The associations I've made during my employment here will truly be memorable for years to come.

    I hope a two-week notice is sufficient for you to find a replacement for me. If I can help to train my replacement or tie up any loose ends, please let me know.

    Thank you very much for the opportunity to work here.

  • To be honest, unless you intend to put this place of employment down as a major reference in future jobs you don't have to be very formal. A quickly typed, "Dear XX, I will be resigning effective X/X/XX. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to grow and learn with your company. Sincerely, XX" If you have a close, personal relationship with the manager, then by all means write out a heartfelt note. Trust me, your two weeks notice letter will not come up when asking for a reference. What DOES matter is that you submit a 2 weeks or more notice of resignation. AND MAKE A COPY!!! Just in case!

  • PS You do not have to disclose why you are leaving or go into great details. You can simply add "I have accepted another job opportunity" or "due to personal reasons." If you are leaving because of an issue with the company, you can elaborate. If you are accepting a position with a competitor, you should disclose where you are accepting employment for legal reasons. Some companies have policies specifically regarding an employee accepting a job offer from a competitor and that they must resign immediately.
