RE: Resignation

Dear Sir/Madame:

                 This is to inform you of my intention to resign from my position as (Insert your current position) effective (Date when the resignation becomes effective -- which is often 15 or 30 days from notice depending on your company policy or labor law in your country).    

                  I would like take this opportunity to convey my gratitude for the career growth and personal development opportunities given to me during my stay with this organization.

                  To ensure the smooth transition and turnover of my responsibilities and accountability,  be assured of my continued attendance in the remaining period.  Thank you once again and more power!
