Dear [Employer Name],

Please accept this letter as resignation of my position as Recruiter, effective February 20, 2001. I am offering two weeks’ notice- this will give you an opportunity to find a suitable replacement. If you would like,  I am more willing to provide training and orientation to the newcomer.

My decision to resign was finalized after long and careful consideration of all factors. I regret leaving friends here; however, I feel the change will be beneficial to my long-term career goals and objectives . I assure you that I will complete any outstanding projects and business affairs before my departure- the transition will be handled professionally to ensure no internal or external problems.

Again, it has been a pleasurable learning experience working as part of your team and I wish nothing but success for [Company Name]

Sincerely,
