Successful Job Transitions, II: I Quit! Now What?

Type a letter!

It doesn't matter if your co-workers have gotten wind of your intentions to move or even if you've discussed it with your boss beforehand, formalize your leaving with a letter of resignation.

Keep your letter short and sweet, stating nothing but the facts: I quit; it's nothing personal; time to move on; I love you all; good luck; good-bye!
