Dear [Your Boss’ Name],
Please accept this letter as formal notification that I am resigning from my position as [the Editor-in-Chief] with [The Texas Travesty]. My last day will be [today].
Thank you so much for the opportunity to work in this position for the past [year]. I’ve greatly enjoyed and appreciated the opportunities I’ve had to [order pizza for the crew], and I’ve learned [some stuff about comedy], all of which I will take with me throughout my career. I will greatly miss my conversations with [Kevin] and the fun times we had at [China Family Restaurant].
During my last two weeks day, I’ll do everything possible to wrap up my duties and train other team members. Please let me know if there’s anything else I can do to aid during the transition.
I wish the company continued success, and I hope to stay in touch in the future.
P.S. I would be remiss if I didn’t ruin the bit a little with some #sincerity. To the entire staff, and especially to the members of the upper staffs I’ve been a part of — Eileen, Grace, Ben, Max, Virginia, David, Aakash, and Laura—it’s been a genuine pleasure working with all of you. I am blown away by your talents and your knowledge of things on the internet, and I will greatly miss shooting-the-shit (if you will) with all of you during deadline weekends. I can honestly say that I’ve disliked most organizations I’ve been a part of in my life (s/o High School Student Council) but I’ve never really stopped liking this one because of the people. I will also miss the dopamine rush of judging other people’s content and seeing people laugh at something you wrote. It’s very hard to make a thing, and especially a thing like the thing we make, so I’m glad we got to do it. Especially so given that I got to put “There aren’t enough Asian-American serial killers represented in media” in print. Finally, I just wanted to say that I didn’t get in (deservedly) the first time I applied here, and I can’t believe I am writing this as the Editor-in-Chief now. Just goes to show you, anything is possible in this great country of ours (except for universal healthcare, gun control, coronavirus testing, etc.)
