Today, I was forced to resign from my job. I never had to do this before and I hopefully will never have to do it again. Below is the actual letter I sent to the College of Education.

23 September 2009

Dear XXXX,

It is with great sorrow and heavy heart that I am hereby tendering my written notice of resignation to you from the position of graduate assistant, effective immediately. The past few weeks have been a tumultuous time for me as I deliberated the direction of my career. This was a difficult decision, as working for the College of Education has been a positive experience and one for which I am thankful. I have learned a great deal and have enjoyed working with everyone here. However, career enhancement opportunities have led me to accept a different position. This final decision was reached only after thorough consideration. I regret the inconvenience this immediate resignation may cause, but circumstances have left me no choice.

I have enjoyed my tenure here and I appreciate having had the opportunity to work with everyone. I consider just about everyone I have met here to be friends of mine now, and I will miss them all. I thank the College of Education for many opportunities it afforded me to both learn and contribute. I will take many positive memories with me to my new employment.

I am looking forward to this new challenge and to starting a new phase of my career. Although there is much to say, I believe the reasons leading to this decision are known by you, and I will therefore leave them unsaid at this time. Please feel free to contact me at any time should you have any questions regarding my past work or if I can be of any assistance otherwise. I hope that this transition will go smoothly for everyone.

I wish continued success to everyone in the College of Education, and thank you again for my employment all this time.
