Resign effective date Leave date is X Kissy 0 Vote up! Do people actually include the rubbish about thanks for the opportunities etc...? 0 Vote up! It's nice to be nice. 0 Vote up! It is nice, but don't bother in resignation letter. The really key thing is that you leave on excellent terms, that's the legacy you leave 0 Vote up! I’ve never written one longer than 2 sentences: notice of resignation; effective date. End. 0 Vote up! Roses are red Violets are blue I’ll still be working But just not for you xx 8 Vote up! You explain why before you hand it in and maybe in the exit interview. The letter is just a formality to go on file in HR. 0 Vote up! Terrible advice from filth there tbh 1 Vote up! I guess I just like liking things. 0 Vote up! Err why? You go to your boss and say I'm leaving here's why, they make a half hearted attempt to keep you. You then do the notice letter to make it official. Before you leave you maybe get an exit interview. 1 Vote up! There once was a lawyer called ‘me’ Who gave in his notice, you see. It was dated today, took effect straight away, And left him entirely khunt-free. Yours free of copyright. My gift to you. 9 Vote up! Not seeing any terrible advice there. Terrible advice would be to simply hand it in cold as a total surprise. 0 Vote up! I didn't even have a letter when I left my last firm. Just called up the head of the team and informally after a couple of months later. Did all the "thanks for the opportunity stuff, you're so great" in person. 0 Vote up! Deffo speak to boss But don't explain Hr interview LOL 0 Vote up! Don't see why you wouldn't explain, any good boss would want to know. Yes exit interviews are lol but just part of the process and as you want to leave on good terms you'd go along with it. So advice is just fine, thanks . 0 Vote up! Alright meht? Hope you’re well. These are all the reasons I hate you… Have a good life. Love, Muggo 0 Vote up! I just drop the letter as once I’ve decided I’m going I’m going to don’t want the awful half hearted attempt to get me to stay. I like to do it on my way out on a Friday. 0 Vote up! A photocopy of your boobs 0 Vote up! Or moobs? 0 Vote up! Or arse? 0 Vote up! Assessment are acceptable, but it has to be boobs otherwise I'm afraid Pinkus. Borrow someone else's if need be. 0 Vote up! *arses are acceptable My autocorrect is really fvcking prudish 0 Vote up! I will look bavk on my time in the emplyment team here at freshchance linkedovaries with fond mammaries 2 Vote up! You're resigning. Calculate last day is x. Thank you for opps etc. Few lines tops. Speak to boss just before as a heads up and can go into more detail re reasons then and in exit interview. 0 Vote up! "Terrible advice would be to simply hand it in cold as a total surprise." Do we think me having numerous "appointments" and being sporadically overdressed is enough? Or should I be dropping more hints...? 0 Vote up! I will look bavk on my time in the emplyment team here at freshchance linkedovaries with fond mammaries Moobamries? 0 Vote up! there once was a lawya called mutters whose chat got progressively butters … 0 Vote up! I didn't do an exit interview for my last move. Was already on secondment at new job. Gave notice Thursday and finished on Friday. New job started Monday. Next time I will try to take a couple of weeks out inbetween but I said that last time too. 0 Vote up! "Do we think me having numerous "appointments" and being sporadically overdressed is enough? Or should I be dropping more hints...?" Are you trying to leave or just want attention? Presumably you are a lawyer so if you have an issue you have the minerals to talk to your boss about it, no? If you want out, who cares if they know or not, before you tell them you are resigning? 0 Vote up! But it's very simple. Tell your boss in person. Follow up with two line notice. Attend HR interview but don't say anything negative. 0 Vote up! That shit on your desk. It wasnt me. It's just a coincidence. PS I'm leaving. 3 Vote up! Davos there are some issues you know won't be solved by a chat especially when you've already had that chat directly and indirectly a number of times and nothing has changed... 0 Vote up! At the moment it should probably say "I am feeling bold in the face of an imminent recession and the drying up of the vast waves of helicopter money that have fuelled a boom at law firms, but please don't fill the vacancy". 0 Vote up! I just print out a copy of the wikipedia entry for hydroponics and hand it to HR. 0 Vote up! It should be a straightforward notice period and date of leaving and optionally a short sentence thanking them. Any further chat if needed could be done separately. 0 Vote up! “It’s me, not you. I’ve got ambition and a sense of morality. You can keep my court collar and tabs as a keepsake. All the best.” 1 Vote up! Always mention that you have been offered a substantial pay rise elsewhere and restart your professional development. 1 Vote up! Refresh Back to board Join the discussion Login Register 0 Vote up!
