You write a simple resignation letter by keeping the letter brief and matter-of-fact. Before you submit a resignation letter, however, you will want to have a conversation with your boss, and inform him/her of your intention to resign from the job. This is the most respectful way to resign from a job. Before the verbal conversation, draft a resignation letter—it will help you think through what you want to say in the verbal conversation, and how you want to say it.
Your resignation letter should thank your boss and the company for the experience you have gained. From there, note that you’re pursuing another opportunity with another company (if that’s the case). You don’t need to mention the name of the new company, nor do you need to mention the name of your new title. You should also note in the resignation letter the date you verbally resigned, and who you verbally resigned to (so, the date that you had the resignation conversation with your boss, and your boss’ name).
You should also state your last day in the office in the resignation letter. Be sure you’ve agreed upon this last day with your boss in advance. Ideally, it should be two weeks or longer than when you formally submit the resignation letter.
You may be tempted to use the resignation letter as a place to air your grievances. This is not the place to do it. Keep your resignation letter positive and upbeat. It is simply a place to formally state your last day, and to thank your employer for the experience you’ve gained.

First, you should open up your letter with a friendly and formal opening. Make sure you address your supervisor or manager directly and use their full name in the greeting. After opening up the letter, start by stating that you have plans to resign and then state your date of resignation.
While you don't have to list your reason(s) for leaving, it is appropriate to do so if you want to provide this information. If you want to include this information, do not list any negative reasons, such as a disagreement with a coworker or manager. It's important that you try and leave your current position on a positive note.
As you wrap up your letter, thank your employer for the experience you had working for that company. Then, end your letter with a formal signoff and your full name.
