I left a midi of "Take This Job and Shove It" looping on my work PC. I PC-Anywhere'd in and started it :)

Obviously I was no longer on good terms with them. In your case, I'd take JEEPers' advice.

(Firm Name)

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the opportunities I have experienced while working with this company. My achievments and personal growth while working for this company are unrivaled and I owe a great deal of respect and admiration to the leaders of our work unit.

I have been presented with an opportunity to continue my personal growth and feel it would be in my own best interest to persue this prospect. The opportunities available to employees of (Firm Name) are valuable beyond definition, but my personal path of development calls for a direction not currently available to me.

Again, please accept my sincerest appreciation for the growth and development I have experienced in my (# years) with (Firm Name). My resignation is effective ##/##/2001.

(Your Name)

This is from a business letter program I have:
-----
Dear (name):

It is with regret that I must resign my position at (company name).

After much deliberation, I have decided to (go back to school, accept a position at another company, etc.). I am thankful for the opportunities I was given at (company), and I will miss the people that I have worked with during the last (number) years.

I request that my last day be (date).

Again, I thank you and the rest of the Management for (number) enjoyable years of valuable experience.

Sincerely,
----


Note, this letter is made to make YOU look good. You say that you "regret" leaving, that you really deliberated, and you thanked them for the opportunity. You also reminded them HOW LONG you were there.

You know this letter will be put in your file, and in the future if anyone calls for a reference, this letter will be easy to find for the person giving the reference and they will easily be able to confirm the length of your employment. This sounds like a small thing but if you worked there 5 years and put that on an application, and the person calls to confirm but the person who confirms says, "I dunno, maybe 3 years or so?" then it will look like you were lying.

Another thing this letter does is sort of leaves it open for a counter-offer from the current employer. It's implied that you really liked it and it was a hard decision... your current employer may make you an offer you can't refuse!

It is with regret that I must resign my position as Jenna Jamison/Chasy Lain/Devon supporting male actor.

After much deliberation, I have decided to move on to meaningful roles as an actor. I am thankful for the opportunities I was given at Vivid, and I will miss the people that I have worked with during the last 5 years.

I request that my last day be April 1, 2002.

What if I was only working there for 4 months? Do I really want to be reminded of that? :p :p :p

Those are all good ideas. However, have you considered that you have an opportunity to really help your co workers that you are leaving behind?

Ask for an exit interview with your immediate boss, his boss, and then human resources. Why? Because its a perfect way to let all of those levels of management know how the company could be better, co workers that are incompetent/qualified etc...

I got fired from my first job after i got sober. I filed a grievance, and got my boss fired, thus ending her tryannical 10 year reign. I was a hero. People even helped me (like they gave me a copy of her job description). No one had the balls to do anything about this bitch on wheels.

And, requesting such an interview will liken your chances of rehire, if the other job doesnt work out.

><i>US citizenship dont expire, u FOB!</i>

It can be revoked if you lied on your application. Like, f'rinstance, you really *were* a loader at Treblinka.

As for the idea about having an exit interview and honestly telling your company what they could be doing better, choose one from Column A, two from Column B:

(1) You tell them what's wrong with the way they are running their business, they're all astounded at what has been going on at the lower levels that they didn't know, they implement all your suggestions, productivity improves, share values shoot up, salaries are doubled, they dominate the market and wipe out all competition. Due to declining market share, you get laid off by your new company, and your old company doesn't hire you back since you already told them during your exit interview everything they needed to know. For free.

(2) You tell them what's wrong with the way they are running their business, your boss tells his boss that you have always had an attitude problem and he puts a positive spin on everything you said and convinces his boss that everything you said was wrong and that he is running his group just fine. You gain nothing, your boss forever more gives you nothing but bad references, your boss' boss is self-confirmed in his suspicion that he didn't get where he is today by listening to disgruntled peons at exit interviews.

In all of the above cases, the floozy from human resources doesn't give a shit what you have to say, because you're not in her department.

Under no circumstances will anybody thank you, nor will you make any money from this. What the fuck do you care if your former company improves their operations?
