  • Letters of resignation advice

    Any pointers on writing a resignation email for an employed EM job? Short and sweet?

    Thank them for the opportunity and give your required notice. Two sentences max.

      Tell your boss verbally and hand it in. Include the date you're leaving.

        Oh gosh, I can't just email them my two lines? I feel like I need proof for one thing, and also I'm chicken. And I have two directors.

          As far as I am concerned, you are different. You only need one line, the date of resignation. Just saying, marching to your own drummer is not a bad thing.

                      And CC yourself too as proof that you sent it and it was received, since yours went through cyberspace and landed back to you.

                        Any thoughts on the subject line for the email?

                          I also set up a face-to-face appointment with my director on the exact day of the required 90-day notice and submitted a hard copy of the e-mail message I sent a few minutes prior to the appointment. After the meeting, I also gave a courtesy call to my CEO.

                            On a scale of 1 to 10, this is a 1.5 in terms of stress level. I emailed an attachment while I was out of town with the subject "letter of resignation." Was rehired two years later. I would seriously not sweat this.
