Writing the resignation letter while leaving the job makes the process of leaving smoother. It is always recommended to maintain a good relationship with your employer even if you are moving to the other job or you are leaving the job for any other reason.
You may need to ask your previous employer to write a letter of recommendation for you anytime in future. So, it is recommended to stay as professional as possible while leaving the job. Your resignation letter should also provide the official notice.
The duration of notice that should be given before leaving the job may vary from company to company however, notice of two weeks in advance should be given when you plan to leave. Resignation can be written with no notice, short notice or extended notice.
Even if you have discussed with your employer face to face about your resignation, you are still in need to write a formal resignation letter.
Make sure that the tone of your resignation letter is friendly and positive even if you are leaving the job for uncomfortable job circumstances.
Complaining in the resignation letter or criticizing the employer is not a professional way to write a resignation letter. Since this letter is your last communication between you and the employer, it should leave a good part in impression.
