Quitting your job can be sometimes difficult for several reasons. We often resign because we want to look for new and better opportunities to develop, but that does not mean we should end our working relationship in an inappropriate way.
It is very correct to end a working relationship by writing a resignation letter. Here you will find some model voluntary resignation letters.

To whom it may concern:
I hereby let you know my personal decision to end my labor link with your company, which started on July 9, 2005. I hope you understand this decision has strictly professional reasons, which will help me grow professionally and allow me to apply my skill in other professional area.
I would also like to point out that, according to the legal deadline, I will stop working with your company on December 29, 2010. I would not like to leave without expressing my gratitude for both the job opportunity you gave me and your trust in my professional skills.

CONSORCIO SAN JOSE S.A.
Calle Juan Domingo Perón n°901
Human Resources Department
May 24, 2010
To whom it may concern:
I hereby let you know my resignation to the position I have had since September 8, 2009. I have personal reasons, which I have discussed with my family and which have led me to make a decision that will take me away from my current job position.
It is sad for me to tell you about my decision and I hope you find someone to replace me soon so the company you manage is not affected and they can have the necessary time to adapt to the way the company works.
I would also like to thank you for your trust during the time I worked with this company, for the great opportunity you gave me to grow professionally, and all the affection I received from all my coworkers and you.
I greet you cordially and I repeat it will always be a pleasure working with you.
Felipe Augusto Pastor Soler
After reading these two model voluntary resignation letters, you might have noticed that people who make that decision highlight the positive things about the company they leave, and they thank for the opportunity of working there.
In conclusion, expressing appreciation for the opportunity we were once given is a great way to leave a company.
