Resignation Letter Due to Career Growth

Updated April 26, 2017

Career growth, and the financial benefit that comes with it is one of the biggest concerns for everyone. No one wants to be stranded in the same position, year after year, and do the same thing that they have done for many years. When you feel that you are stagnated, it is time to move on. Writing a resignation letter at this point may be just what the doctor ordered.

Unless you see a way up within the company from where you are standing, it is best to say a polite goodbye and move on. When you write a resignation letter, be honest about your reason to leave. There was a time when it was not recommended to be absolutely open about one’s reasons to leave so that employers cannot hold you back because of the little autonomy that they had. With labor rules and regulations now being properly enforced, you do not need to think along those lines. Say what you have to in your resignation letter, as long as it is not crass or rude.

Your resignation letter should be clear and concise. State exactly why you are leaving. What follows is a sample resignation letter:

Dear Ms. Hull:

While it was a tough decision to make, I have decided to resign from my position as Administrative Aide for Marsden West Inc. I contemplated and discovered that my career is stagnant and I am unable to move up the ladder.

Over the last 4 years, I have been actively searching for an internal position that might provide me with some room for growth, but my efforts have been in vain. The past 7 years that I have spent here were incredible, and had things been slightly different, I wouldn’t think of ever leaving this place. I would like to thank you for the experience and exposure that working here has provided me with – both are things that I cherish immensely.

My last working day will be May 10 – my notice period is in sync with the terms and conditions laid out in my contract. Please let me know if there is anything that I can do to make sure that my exit transition is smoothed out for myself, and the company.
