How to ResignWrite a resignation letter that sounds like a thank you letter- where you thank them for the experience, praise them, etc. but explain you must leave (give soft, vague reasons that aren't offensive- i.e. "better fit"). Tell you boss(es) in person, and hand them an envelope with the letter.... 2 years 6 months
