Administrative Assistant Resignation Letter Sample

Updated on July 1, 2015

Ever wonder what happened to the days when people would retire from their first job? Well, those days are a thing of the past. Where job-hopping was once considered career suicide, employers are slowly beginning to understand and even accept career changing as a norm. Why? Things have changed – times have changed. Staying in one job often means stagnation – a word that is worse than poison to a career-oriented individual. People move from job to job, looking for better salaries and more responsible positions.

The anatomy of an administrative assistant resignation letter has changed over the years. Standard, two liners letter don’t work anymore. Just a decade or so ago, it was alright to write “Hello, I am leaving because I have another job, goodbye.” That is considered rude now.

Writing a resignation letter from administrative assistant position requires a few stories to be written – stories of success, of understanding and of course, stories of “how much you have learned from the company that you are now ready to leave.” How does one do this? Simple! Take a look at the sample resignation letter for an administrative assistant below:

Dear Mr. Pitt:

It was a difficult decision to make but I have finally decided to resign from my position as administrative assistant for the Westpoint Supplies. In keeping with the terms and conditions of my employment agreement, I am providing two weeks’ notice of my intent to leave. July 15, 2015 will be my last working day.

I would like to extend my appreciation to Westpoint Supplies for developing me as an administrative expert. Under your guidance, I have gained extensive skills and expertise over the past 3 years.

In the capacity of an administrative assistant, I realize that I am handling a lot of sensitive data which I assure will not be compromised and will be handed over to you accurately. Please let me know whom you would like me to train in my place so that I can begin the handing/taking procedure immediately.

Thank you one again for your mentorship and kindness over the years.
