Job Resignation Memo Sample

To: Mr. James Julia

From: Scott Hent

Date: September 16, 2013

Subject: Resignation


Dear Jim,

It’s with somewhat of a heavy heart that I am submitting my written notice of resignation from Honeywell — effective two weeks from today. My last day will be 11/30/12.

The past few weeks have been a difficult time for me as I deliberated the direction of my career and whether it would be best served staying with Honeywell or moving to a new position with a new employer. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have, but I am not comfortable discussing my new position at this time.

I will be happy to help train my replacement — or do anything else you feel will help make the transition smoother.

Thanks so much Jim. My experience at Honeywell has been rewarding and productive, and I wish only the best for you — and for the company.
