Formal Resignation Letter With Reason

If you are about to hand your notice in for the role that you have been working on and feel that you want to give your employer’s the reason for leaving then it is important to think first what that reason is.

Sometimes we hand our notice in because we have stopped enjoying working at a company or you could have got a new job or you could be leaving for more personal reasons such as relocation, travelling etc.

It is important to remember to always aim to leave on a good note. Therefore if you hate your current role and that is the reason why then you need to be very constructive about your reasons for leaving so that you are not seen to be bad mouthing the company you are looking to leave.
