Just Passed My Resignation Letter: Sure Did!

I've been reflecting lately and I was able to find out that something has to be changed with what I'm doing. Something is not right and I guess I should solve it immediately. I haven't seen any growth with myself lately (obviously I'm not referring to my height because I've already accepted the fact that I can't grow any inch higher). Anyway, so much for the "emo" mode and let's get straight to the point. In a span of15 minutes, I was able to formulate my resignation letter. Obviously, I'm resigning from my job for real.

Maybe for others out there who has been dying to get a job, a resignation could be a mad thing to do. However, I want you all to know that it's a case to case basis. If you're not happy anymore with your current job and it seems that getting into the office everyday couldn't give you the satisfaction that you're looking for, then it's a different story. If your principles and beliefs in life is no longer inclined with the company's then something has to be stopped. Continuing with your work could either ruin you or the company per se.
I'm writing this post not just because I want to share what I'm feeling right now but might as well be giving idea to others out there what does a resignation letter might look like. Below is a snapshot of my very own resignation letter, in which I'll be giving later to my boss.

In writing a resignation letter you should take note of the following:

1. Get straight to the point in your resignation letter.
2. State your intention of resigning.
3. Mention your acceptance of another job offer if any.
4. Depending on your company's protocol, state the number of minimum days of notice before the effectiveness of your resignation.
5. If #3 exists, don't forget to mention that the new position you have accepted fits better with your personal preferences or career goals.
6. It should contain thanks to your employer for the opportunity to work for his/her organization.

I hope you've learned something from this post.
