The purpose of a resignation letter - Deepstash

The purpose of a resignation letter

A resignation letter is not to announce your departure. It is documentation of your decision, not the main event.

Have your resignation conversation with your boss first, then formalize it with your written resignation.

MORE IDEAS FROM How to Write a Perfect Resignation Letter

A resignation letter should be short and unemotional. It is not the place to mention your frustrations or disappointments.

Your letter should be two to three sentences at most. It should indicate today's date, then confirm your decision to resign and when your last day of work will be. You might add a single sentence to fill it out.

Understand the point of a cover letter

When writing a cover letter it is important to understand the significance of it. One's cover letter should go beyond their work history and must include the things that cannot be found in a resume.

It should include personal traits, work habits, inter and intrapersonal skills, achievements, and even one's enthusiasm for the job.

Your cover letter is like a simple introduction of who you are and what makes you a strong candidate for the company.

The big problem with contingent

They’re very risky for the applicant. Even if you don't resign from your job before the reference check, you will have to tell your boss you are on the verge of leaving. So either way, you’d be in a vulnerable position with your security in your current job at risk before your offer is final.

As a candidate, one option is to push back on the contingency, explain it could jeopardize your current job, and offer up plentiful other references.

Describing ourselves on paper

Describing ourselves on paper, while blindly attempting to live up to the expectations of others, makes it all feel like a giant lie.

We’re the experts on ourselves, right? So why do we find it so difficult to convey who we are in text?

  1.  We’re writing to seek the approval of others. Perhaps the worst part is that we don’t know who’s reading our words or who our competitors are.
  2. For many of us, though, the main reason we find it so hard to write about ourselves it’s so, so easy to procrastinate.
