Exclamation HELP! Writing a Good Resignation Letter

Hey guys.

I am moving on to bigger and hopefully better things in my career. I would like to hand in a resignation letter that conveys how greatful I am for the opportunity I have been given in this firm and that my decision has been made with regret and yada yada yada. I don't have much experience writing resignation letters and perhaps I am overthinking it but I really need help wording this baby.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Personally, I think heartfelt is the way to go. Not much else to say, other than what you have said in your post, really. You are grateful, appreciative, etc......

So I am overthinking it haha. I know what to say, just not so much how to say it. Especially the beginning..

"Regretfully, this will be my two weeks notice"? Or "Regretfully <insert date> will be my last day.."

Overthinking it a bit too much?

What a great problem to have! Maybe you might could do something like this:

To [actual person's name here]:

It's with much regret that I'm writing to let you know that [future date] will be my last day with [company name]. While I am excited to be pursuing new career opportunities, please know that I am also enormously grateful for the experience and skills this position has afforded me, and for the truly exceptional working relationships I have enjoyed here. Please don't hesitate to let me know what I can do to help transition my work: it has been a genuine honor and a privilege to be a part of [company name], and I will be glad to do everything I can to help ensure its future success.

With best regards,

[your name]

You are leaving, nothing else really is going to matter, You can say, "Piece out Hommeys !" It really isnt going to matter.
But you never wanna burn bridges even if the old job really sucked.
So I would simply say,
It regrets me to inform you that I am tendering my resignation effective "date" I appreciated the experience and knowledge I gained here but I feel this move is right for me.

Not sure of your situation you may wanna put why you are leaving. But in a good way.
You could add, "I have accepted another position which I feel offers me,
Better quality of life,
More money
Chance to travel.
Change to better career
More in line with career goals
Or something else, doinng that may open the door for a counter offer. Sometimes you have to leave a company to get ahead in that company.

Thank you for your response. Very helpful and kind of the kick in the butt I needed lol I just never know how to word that initial statement and then follow in to something else. Kind of like an essay - I am no good at it!
