Dear Mr. Smith:

Please accept this letter as written communication of my formal resignation effective March 8, 2009. My time with has been both challenging and rewarding. I sincerely hope my contributions have been felt not only in our department, but also across the company as a whole.

After much thought, I have accepted a position outside of the company. The position will allow me to enhance my career and expose me to new challenges and opportunities. I am confident of my decision. Should you compliment me with a counter offer, I could not under any circumstances consider it. My decision is final.

I intend to put forth every effort to complete projects and transfer over my responsibilities during my final two weeks. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help with a smooth transition.
