Resignation Letter For Unsatisfying Circumstances


Resignation Letter - When Circumstances Are Not Satisfying

The following resignation letter has wording that mentions a situation that the worker no longer feels they can work in. While it may make sense to elaborate to a certain extent on the circumstances, I would caution against using your resignation letter as a place to rant.

Today’s Date

Manager Name
Company Name
Company Address

Dear Mr./Ms. Manager:

It is with reluctance that I’m submitting this letter. Although my time with (company name) has been, on the whole, satisfying and productive, for quite a while now I have become less and less satisfied with the work situation. The direction of the company, the group in which I work, and the new targets and the methods of accomplishing them are making it increasingly difficult for me to feel that I’m contributing sufficiently.

Therefore, it is with regret that I ask you to accept this as my resignation from (company name) effective (last day of work).
