Thinking of moving to another city to bag a laborer’s position in a company that you have always wanted to work for? Well, good luck in writing a resignation letter to your present employer! You might find it hard to say goodbye to a job that you have held for a long time but if you have found the job of your dreams, moving can make a huge difference to your self-confidence and your bank account!
But you do need to hand in a formal resignation letter to inform your employer of your intent to leave. Typically, your resignation letter should include why you are leaving and how much notice you are providing. It is a huge possibility that your present company has rules regarding the notice period so make sure that you abide by the rules when you give your notice. You will need to be honest about your reason for leaving but it is in your best interest not to mention that you are leaving because of a higher pay elsewhere. While many employers may not be too upset at the thought of you leaving because you are being paid well by another company, it is better to be on the safe side.

Dear Mr. Ridley:
Please consider this letter as a formal resignation from my position as a Laborer from Atlas Oil Company. As per the company policy regarding resignation notice period (and the contract that I signed), I am serving a two week’s notice of my intent to leave. February 21, 2015 will be my last day at work.
I was offered a job to work for Simon Contractors in Wilmington, CA three months ago which I declined at that time. However, since most of my immediate family lives in Wilmington, I now believe that this move will be a good idea as I will get to live with them while working in the same role as I am now. I will be moving by the end of February as I have to report to work on March 1, 2015 and I will need some time to settle in.
Atlas Oil Company has been my home away from home for three years and it was not an easy decision to leave. I was blessed to have great supervisors and coworkers who taught me the mechanics of working at an oil rig – an experience that will stay with me forever and will help me in my future commissions as well.
I would appreciate it if you could have my reference letter issued as early as possible and provide me with details of any accumulated benefits. Thank you very much.
