J-2: Template for Resignation Letter

This is a guest post by my good friend Johnny. He knows stuff about me, so I let him write on my blog...

By Jaded Johnny (J-2)

The other day an employee asked me for a resignation letter template. We in HR don't accept additional work lightly, but in this case it makes sense.

When no employees leave the company, the turnover is low and there's no need to recruit replacements. So who needs HR in a perfect world? Therefore "high turnover = job security for HR".

So I created two quick and dirty templates for resignation letters. The first one is boring, the other one should only be used if you're really pissed off.

We'd all love to write what we really think, sadly it just shouldn't be done. First of all the resignation letter is not the place to write it (exit interview would be better). Second, you better be aware that the company may blacklist you if you go off on their faults as you leave.

Rachel, you're absolutely right. But listening to reason isn't exactly one of J-2's strong points.

I only let him write his crazy ideas on my blog because I have no choice...

I think sometimes Frank feels the same way about me :)
